Sensations and Suffering

A wonderful, and quite forensic breakdown of the how sensations become suffering., and the role our conditioned reactions play in that transition. Essential viewing if you’re as fascinated by the processes within Vipassana meditation.

  1. Fascinating – thanks!

    Sounds like something the Vic Dept Justice should look into as means of dealing with increase in juvenile crime!

    Cheers

    • Absolutely they should … trouble is, their idea of meditation is polluted by their ignorance in combination with the media’s constant trivialisation of meditation …

  2. Thank you for this. It is indeed fascinating.
    Thanks to you (and your many teachers), my life mantra now is “Pain is inevitable, suffering optional”. Nowhere near realising it, but at least I know of such a thing, which is a giant leap for me.

    • Wonderful mantra … I’d probably adjust it a little tho … ‘sensations are inevitable, suffering optional’ … pedantic I know, but the word ‘pain’ is itself loaded with, and suggests connotations of suffering … and in the end, whatever it is, whether pleasure or pain, it’s all just sensations in different frequencies.
