Tonight we take a close look to the list of the eight types of suffering.
- encountering the unpleasant
- being separated from the pleasant
- not achieving one’s desires even though one works for them
- taking rebirth with contaminated aggregates
Number one and two we already discussed the last time, about the others we will learn more today. How do we meditate on it and why is it so important to reflect on these topics?
