Using Dukkha as a Guide
2013-02-02 Using Dukkha as a Guide 56:30
Andrea Fella
This talk explores the term "dukkha" (suffering), and the different ways it is used in the Buddha's teachings. The main way that "dukkha" is used is in context of the Four Noble Truths, and in that context, we begin to understand that dukkha is created by processes at work in our own minds. Seeing that, we realize that when we meet suffering, we are simply meeting our own minds, and that dukkha has something to teach us. As we understand dukkha with mindfulness and wisdom, that understanding helps to release us from dukkha and its cause.
