Part I focuses on the practice of śraddhā, the causes and conditions that lead to its arising and the subsequent behavior that its arising entails. This analysis begins, in chapter 1, with an analysis of the Koṭikarṇa-avadāna, focusing on the close connection between śraddhā and seeing. Seeing and śraddhā are intertwined, and the discourse of the latter necessitates an understanding of the role of the former for moral action. Within this matrix, seeing is believing, seers are authorities, seeing is authoritative, and believing is seeing.

Keywords:   Koṭikarṇa-avadāna, śraddhā, seeing, believing
