The Buddha taught: because this exists, that arises. Because this is born, that is born. The Twelve Links explains how through the condition of ignorance, compounding factors arise, from these; consciousness, name and form, the six sense spheres, contact, feeling, craving, grasping, existence, birth, aging and death.
