Law of Dependent Origination
    It states that all phenomenon arise depending upon a number of casual factors. In other word, it exists in condition that the other exist; it has in condition that others have; it extinguishes in condition that others extinguish; it has not in condition that others have not. For existence, there are twelve links in the chain:

        Ignorance is the condition for karmic activity;
        Karmic activity is the condition for consciousness;
        Consciousness is the condition for the name and form;
        Name and form is the condition for the six sense organs;
        Six sense organs are the condition for contact;
        Contact is the condition for feeling;
        Feeling is the condition for emotional love/craving;
        Emotional love/craving is the condition for grasping;
        Grasping is the condition for existing;
        Existing is the condition for birth;
        Birth is the condition for old age and death;
        Old age and death is the condition for ignorance; and so on.
