Talk: Only Suffering That Arises

This phrase, “It’s Only Suffering That Arises, Only Suffering That Ceases”, encompasses the realization of the enlightened beings. But what does it mean, and how do we get there? How do we go from an unenlightened being spinning in the vicissitudes of life to a stable, calm, reflective presence that sees things clearly without suffering over what they are not? In this talk, the first of two for the “Only Suffering That Arises” daylong, Tahn Pamutto sets the theme for the day by describing how we arrive at the vision of our personalized experience of suffering and come to investigate how it might be brought not to arise in the first place.
