Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

What is always & inevitably a sour source of Suffering?

 

The Blessed Buddha once said this:
Bhikkhus & Friends there are these
Four Noble Truths. What four?
The Noble Truth of Suffering;
The Noble Truth on the Cause of Suffering;
The Noble Truth on the End of Suffering;
The Noble Truth on the Way to end Suffering...
These are the Four Noble Truths!
 

What, Bhikkhus & Friends, is the 1st Noble Truth of Suffering?
These Six Sources of Sensing are Suffering!
The sense source of the eye is Suffering...
The sense source of the ear is Suffering...

The sense source of the nose is Suffering...
The sense source of the tongue is Suffering...

The sense source of the body is Suffering...
The sense source of the mind itself is Suffering...
This is thus verily the 1st
Noble Truth of Suffering!
