Dependent origination (or dependent co-arising) is a fundamental Buddhist doctrine and also the most complicated, so it seems like an anomaly to me. The teaching in the Pali suttas is paticca samuppada
Clyde, fundamental and yet complicated should not
be anomalous, I wouldn't have thought. It's up ("down", some say: eh, Larry?!) to one's actual "mentality", at the moment of consideration. No small potatoes, this/that, though.
Consider, alternatively!, say, umm-m, General Relativity, or even Special Relativity. Fundamental, yes: "Complicated", yes, but if you are a Brother, why, you "get
" it (them). (not a great (!) analogy, as one is intellectual, with moving-mind, mind moving. The other, in Awakened condition...IS NOT).
Now, hetu pratyaya
, if you have direct experience of it, ...well, easy-peazy, only natural, and no need for interpreters; why, you yourself may serve as an interpreter (but to minimal effect).
If not (experienced, yet), then it's gonna take tons of dicey translation, and even that will not "do it", for one. How could it... .
All of "Buddhism" is available by experience. Not otherwise!
Somebody else's (true) Wisdom is not one's own. One's own is available with proper practice to ...bring it out.
I'm not saying anything gnu,
