Hi bhante @Brahmali I really enjoyed last Saturday’s session ( 14/Nov)
Indeed, it seems to me you and venerable Sunyo tackled most of the questions above.
Also, I am always happy to hear your thoughts on the powerful and yet so often overlooked discourse we find in AN10.61!
I think it is one of those suttas which should be printed and hang on the walls and doors of every Buddhist temple, center etc!
However, I was really hoping to hear your thoughts on the innovative aspect of dependent origination as a model and framework to understand life without falling into the extremes of creationism, nihilism, fatalism, etc
I have a hunch that it was that innovative and unique aspect and flavor that made it such a powerful and liberating standpoint to those in the time of Buddha, being a key reason for the mass conversions from individuals previously engaged with such a wide range of views and opinions about the world and how to live a spiritual life in it.
