My Take On Buddhism’s First Noble Truth

Since I started practicing mindfulness, I’ve become more and more interested in learning about Buddhist philosophy. Some of the foundational teachings of Buddhism are contained in what are traditionall referred to as the Four Noble Truths, the first of which is usually translated something like “In Life there will be suffering.”

There is a lot of debate around that original word for “suffering.” I’ll not get into that here, but will happily provide resources the the comments below. For now, though, take a look at my video in which I try to unpack the essential teaching within this First Noble Truth by using a different word than “suffering.”
