The Endlessness of Suffering

Ajahn Karunadhammo

Ajahn Karunadhammo recalls the First and Second Watches of the night of the Buddha’s enlightenment, in which the Buddha saw his own endless wanderings through samsara, and other beings’ arising and passing through various states of woe. He then describes the Buddha’s enlightenment in the Third Watch, in which the Buddha realized The Four Noble Truths, and the practice of mindfulness immersed in the body as a way to liberation.
