From the arising of this comes the arising of that.
When this is not, that is not.
From the cessation of this comes the cessation of that.

[…]

From the cessation of craving comes the cessation of clinging.

From the cessation of clinging comes the cessation of becoming.

From the cessation of becoming comes the cessation of birth.

From the cessation of birth, then old age and death,

sorrow, lamentation, pain, distress, and despair all cease.

Such is the cessation of this entire mass of suffering.

—Buddha Shakyamuni
