In Buddhism, bhava means the continuity of life and death, conditioned upon "grasping" (upādāna), the desire for further life and sensation. This bhava is the condition for the arising of living beings in particular forms, through the process of birth (jāti).
Bhava (Becoming) is dependent on upādāna (clinging) as a condition before it can exist.
- "With clinging as condition, becoming arises".
Bhava is also the prevailing condition for the next condition in the chain, Birth (jāti).
- "With becoming as condition, birth arises."
