Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

jāti: 'birth', comprises the entire embryonic process beginning with conception and ending with parturition.

“The birth of beings belonging to this or that order of beings, their being born, their conception (okkanti) and springing into existence, the manifestation of the groups (corporeality, feeling, perception, mental formations, consciousness; see khandha), the acquiring of their sensitive organs: this is called birth” DN 22

For its conditioning by the prenatal kamma-process (kamma-bhava; see bhava), see paṭiccasamuppāda (9, 10), paṭisandhi.
