kamma-bhava

, m. [Buddh. sa. karmabhava], (kar-
madh.
) (process of) becoming which is kamma, i.e.,
according to
Vibh (v. exeg. infra), meritorious (puñña),
demeritorious (apuñña), and imperturbable (āneñja)
kamma formations (abhisaṅkhāra) which constitute
the cause of rebirth
(upapatti or punabbhava, cf. Nidd
I 48,22 foll., q.v. infra); in the scheme of the twelve links
of
paṭiccasamuppāda (causal origination), ~ is said to
be the cause of
uppattibhava (q.v.), both terms defining
the function of the tenth link viz.
bhava (becoming); ~ is
also used to describe the function of the first, second,
eigth, ninth and tenth link of the
paṭiccasamuppāda
viz. [1] avijjā and saṅkhāra, and [2] tanhā, upâdāna,
and bhava, the remaining links being subsumed under
the heading of
upapattibhava; for this analysis, cf. Paṭis
I 52,19-35; — gramm. lit.: kammam eva bhavo ~o,
