In SN 12.41, the Buddha outlines a path to stream-entry for the laity via five precepts, faith, virtue, and dependent origination. In similar, possibly parallel, suttas (e.g., AN 10.92, SN 55.28), ethics, faith, and dependent origination are again expounded to the laity for practice. Taking these suttas and my worldly duties into consideration, I’ve made stream-entry my goal.
DN 31 provides a straight forward treatise on ethics, and AN 6.10 outlines six recollections for cultivating faith. But how does one “carefully and properly attend” on dependent origination? Is this something that happens naturally through breath meditation? What are some of the meditation objects or practices that can be used to gain an intuitive understanding of dependent origination?
