Sister Khema and Dependent Origination video

Toggle
Here is a very interesting 1 hour explanation of dependent origination by Sister Khema who has been helping some yogis at the DhO with jhanas. Worth a watch.

There's another thread on this site at http://www.dharmaoverground.org/discussion/-/message_boards/message/3167721. I quite like these folks' discussion about Dependent Origination.

That link goes, at the moment, to '404 - Page Not Found'. Is there another way in there?

I'm wondering about why the second step of the three fabrications singles out a verbal mode. That video hints that it is related to the 3 ways we act/react in the 10th link. 

It seems to me that verbal is a way of expressing thought. Why is verbal fabrication introduced so early in the links. It seems to indicate there are verbal fabrications that is not associated with thought. 

I hope it is clear that I'm confused.
