Why did the Buddha say he only taught suffering and the end of suffering? If this is the core of what he taught, how diligently do we practice it? Do our practices attempt to understand the nature of anguish or sidestep that issue and attempt to create anguish free environments and foster greater dependency on pleasant experiences? Do we see anguish as a fundamental dharma principle that guides and directs us toward liberation or do we pull back and adapt a philosophical approach to anguish - "This too shall pass." Suffering provides all that is necessary for a complete understanding of the formation of self, but we must be willing to move toward the difficult for that to be imparted.
