2016-09-29 First Noble Truth 35:05
The First Noble Truth is the Buddha's explanation of dukkha, or the truth of suffering. Dukkha refers to the physical and mental stress that we encounter in the process of living. Its meaning is deeper than pain and misery, and refers to our reactions to our experiences. We need to fully recognize and understand suffering as part of the path to liberation.
