The collection of discourses in the Sutta Pitaka known as Samyutta Nikaya has 7,762 suttas of varied length, generally short, arranged in a special order according to subject matter into five major divisions. This second division, the Nidana vagga, is a collection of suttas primarily pertaining to causation or the principles of conditionality and interdependence, explained in the detailed formula of 'Paticcasamuppada', or Dependent Origination. Various aspects of Paticcasamuppada, together with expositions on doctrinal matters concerning practice of the holy life form the main theme of these samyuttas.
The PTS Pali edition is called Samyutta-nikaya, Vol II
