The Patthana is indeed, deep and profound and so it is really difficult to conveive of it completely on one’s own. But the Buddha provided a method so that, on that basis, there would be no difficulty in grasping the subject. That method is none other than the table of Contents (the Triplets and Couplets) expounded at the beginning of Dhammasangani. As examples, the Faultless, Faulty and Indeterminate states of the Faultless Triplet were expounded to form the Faultless Triplet Patthana Section, the states of the Feeling Triplet were expounded to form the Feeling Triplet Patthana Section. Therefore, when the appropriate states of the Triplets are taken as references from the singel enumerations (the conditioning and conditioned states of the conditions) of the Positive and negative conditions, as given in Guide to C.R., Part II the 6 chapters can be easily understood and from the single enumerations of the investigation Chapter, as given in the Introduction to C.R. I, the investigation Chapters can be easily understood.
