Dukkha:  A Buddhist Approach to Ending Suffering

Buddha’s efforts over 2,600 years ago help suggest poignant ways to end our suffering. Buddha offers the Four Noble Truths that inform us of the term, Dukkha.  At first glance, Dukkha appears to mean “suffering”. However, author Joseph Goldstein takes a much closer look at the deeper meaning of Dukkha in the following podcast: https://beherenownetwork.com/joseph-goldstein-ep-30-four-noble-truths/.    Here, we are reminded that Buddha shares the causes of suffering, how to prevent and mitigate suffering, and how release ourselves from painful thoughts and feelings.

Goldstein’s podcast explores Buddha’s conclusion: “It is our personal attachment to the Five Hindrances that generates our personal suffering”.  Joseph Goldstein shares his insight on each of the Five Hindrances to offer the listener a deeper understanding to end suffering.
