The six types of cause (Skt. ṣaḍhetu; Tib. རྒྱུ་དྲུག་; Wyl. rgyu drug) are the basis on which all conditioned things arise. They are:

  1. efficient cause (kāraṇahetu; byed pa'i rgyu)
  2. coemergent cause (sahabhūhetu; lhan cig 'byung ba'i rgyu)
  3. cause similar to its result (sabhāgahetu; skal pa mnyam pa'i rgyu)
  4. concomitant cause (saṃprayuktahetu; mtshungs par ldan pa'i rgyu)
  5. omnipresent cause (sarvatragahetu; kun tu 'gro ba'i rgyu).
  6. ripening cause (vipākahetu; rnam par smin pa'i rgyu)
