TitleAll the things we do is because of dukkha

Content / Description

At least 8 to 12 hours of meditation a day. Person without sati is like a dead person. Most of us are control freaks. Whatever we put inside the body is beautiful, whatever comes out stinks and is disgusting. “We don't want to see dukkha”. “We kill time until we die and we're born again”. Stop running after pleasant sensations and away from unpleasant sensations. Skin is thin like paper and hides the ugliness of the body. Once we really understand the 1st Noble Truth (Dukkha), we have only one choice/will/intention: to get out (Nibbana). Eating/washing/sweeping are just very similar body movements but we like this and dislike that. Face up dukkha vedana (painful bodily feelings) and observe it. Develop sati and don't waste time.
