Buddha Basics 02: Dukkha Sucks

Episode 80 · August 5th, 2022 · 24 mins 17 secs

About this Episode

Dukkha, often translated as "suffering," is at the heart of the four noble truths of Buddhism. But dukkha is about much more than suffering: it also means stress, unhappiness, and dissatisfaction. Its opposite is sukha, which means pleasure, happiness, and comfort.

"Dukkha is sucky, but sukha is ducky."

Theme music by Kiku Day.
