The Origin of Suffering


Sad stuff has been happening lately. It reminds me of the undisciplined nature of humans. The Buddha teaches that the undisciplined mind suffers through its own innate selfishness. This selfishness often manifests itself in rudeness and lack of compassion for others. I've been seeing that a lot lately.

This begins a series of blog posts with various examples of the lack of compassion, but with a lot of anecdotes thrown in. Today's blog is very short, but that first paragraph says a lot and should be considered carefully for a long time.
