    Consciousness

    Dear Venerable,
    ..
    Thank you so much for your easy to understand answers concerning these topics. This is my question: I know I have lived many lives before this one. But going back to my very first life, where did my consciousness come from?

    Dear Regina,

    The ‘beginning’ of consciousness is not understood in this linear way in Buddhism.

    Quite honestly, I would only parrot what is most eloquently said by the Buddha himself. So it is best you read his own words.

    Some good links on the internet are:
    ha-said.net/drops/IV/What_is_Consciousness.htm
    https://what-buddha-said.net/drops/II/Origin.htm

    Please let me know if you need help understanding this.

    With metta,
    Ven Upekkha
