A teaching perhaps most representative and of Buddha is in assertion, ‘Whatever is arising is a ceasing thing’. There is a law of Pratityasamutpada or dependent origination which creates the seemingly underlying unity responsible for the coherence in life. This is in reality a stream of becoming.
The second analogy is that of fire produced by the magnifying glass. According to Buddha School when senses meet their objects sensation is born; sensation leads to memory. The self comes into existence from the contact of the senses and their objects, just as fire occurs from the contact of magnifying glass and the Sun rays.
The bud originates from the seed; though not the seed nonetheless, no different from it as well. Life also, likewise comes into existence.The third example is that of river, Samsara, the transient world is like a river. It’s an ever-changing phenomenon and the name as such is just notional, for everything is changing.
