  • Nidāna

1. Nidāna Sutta

The three means by which deeds are heaped up: greed, hatred and delusion. A.iii.338.

2. Nidāna Sutta

Preached at Kammāsadamma. Ananda tells the Buddha that though the Paticcasamuppāda is so deep, yet, to him, it is so plain. The Buddha warns him against such an idea, because all samsāra is due to lack of understanding of the Causal law (S.ii.92). This sutta was probably called the Cūlanidāna Sutta (E.g., MA.i. 225; VibhA.267) as opposed to the Mahānidāna Sutta.
