- Practicing the Four Noble Truths 2016-03-01
As we explore the Third Noble Truth, Nibbana, we see how the cause of suffering is integral to the end of that suffering. Our day to day approach to the cause of suffering revolves around situations, circumstances and relationships. Therefore getting rid of that suffering means changing those external or internal factors. To transform our understanding of suffering and its cause into the Four Noble Truths, we must understand the cause of suffering to be ignorance. Then we understand embodied wisdom to lead to the end of suffering.
Sincerely ask yourself, “What do I believe is the cause of my suffering?” The cause will define the solution. Focus on clearly seeing this perspective. Notice if underlying this belief there is some assumptions around satisfactoriness, permanence, or ownership.
