skye ba - Birth

The eleventh link, created by becoming, is skye ba, birth, jāti in Sanskrit.

skye is a verb, to grow or arise.

In the Wheel of Life this is is usually shown by the image of the women giving birth. The becoming is changing state, to an actual event, such as birth. As in real life, if normal birth is happening, birth is the starting point of a normal samsaric existence of sufferings now and in future, unless this is now stopped in future by this current life.
