The Doctrine of Paticcasamuppada
Paticcasamuppada is Pali language, a combination of three words, i.e.
Patticca means "because" and "dependent upon."
Sam means "well",
Uppada means "arising of effect through cause",
so dependent on cause there arises effect, hence it is known in English as Law of Dependent Origination or Cycle of Rebirth.
