12 Nidanas and a Man with an arrow in his eye
I would really appreciate any help on where I can read more on the whole chain of the dependent origination and the 12 nidanas, links in the chain of mental habituation. (Preferbaly, on the Internet ).
The one called Feeling (in tranlsation to English) has a powerful (and creepy) image of a man with an arrow in his eye illustrating it. Contact gives rise to feelings of attachment and aversion, depending on the nature of the contact - I get so much. But does the image mean to convey that ANY feeling actually has something dark to it, some suffering in its base? Probably because we already have the desire - to have or not to have - which means we are attached to something already?
