Samutthana (“origination”).—There are 4 kinds of origination of corporeal phenomena, namely:

  1. through karma,
  2. consciousness,
  3. temperature,

For example, 'karma-produced' (kamma-s. = kammaja, karma-born) are the sense organs, sexual characteristics, etc., which, according to their nature, are conditioned either through wholesome or unwholesome karma formations (volitional actions; s. paticcasamuppāda, 2) in a previous existence. 'Mind produced', i.e. consciousness-produced (citta-samutthāna = cittaja) are bodily and verbal expression (viññatti, q.v.).

Samutthāna (समुत्थान) refers to “that which is produced from”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly, “Then the Bodhisattva Gaganagañja said this to the congregation of Bodhisattvas: ‘Sons of good family, may all of you elucidate the gates into the dharma of transcending the path of the works of Māra’ [...] The Bodhisattva Ratnaparityāga said: ‘The works of Māra are produced from obsession with self (ātma-samutthāna). When you are established in the purity of self, what can the Māra do? Why is that? Because vices are purified by the purity of self, and all dharmas are purified by the purity of vices. That which purifies all dharmas purifies open space. Thus the Bodhisattva who is established in the purity of open space transcends the sphere of the Māra’”.
