Why is there Suffering here?
Because of actions performed of beings when:
Blinded by Ignorance!
Pulled by Craving for Pleasure!
Pushed by Fear of Pain!
Seduced by Self-Deception!
The resulting reaction to such actions is Suffering!
When there is a cause, there will also be an effect…
Later, quite much later and very much later …
Therefore: Be Careful… Never ever do bad!
Neither bodily, nor verbally nor mentally!
May all creatures, all that breathe,
all beings one & all, with no exceptions
experience good fortune & joy only.
May they not fall into any harm.
Anguttara Nikaya II, 72
With all his clingings cut,
with all mental urge stilled,
calm, serene and happy is he,
for he has reached peace of mind.
Samyutta Nikaya I, 212
