The Spiral Path or Lokuttara Paṭicca-samuppāda.
3rd draft (Mar 2011.) A survey of the Spiral Path texts found in the Pāli text, and the related contemporary literature. The Spiral Path is considered under the heading of morality meditation, and wisdom with particular attention given to the nature of the links between the stages on the path. Includes a critique of the Upanisā Sutta as locus classicus.
