 The 5 Abilities are Mutually Dependent!



The 5 Abilities (indriya) are
:
The ability of Faith (saddhā)
The ability of Energy (viriya)
The ability of Awareness (sati)
The ability of Concentration (samādhi)
The ability of Understanding (pañña)

They depend mutually and strengthen each other in forward & reverse causality.
The 1st causes the 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th. In parallel all mutually enhances each other!
Such are essentially fine examples of co-dependent co-arising! Paticca-samuppāda:
