All Is Suffering
Lecture no. 5 from the course: Buddhism
Taught by Professor Malcolm David Eckel | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
After the Buddha's death, attention turned to his Dharma, or teaching. A fundamental claim was that "All is suffering." This may seem pessimistic, but Buddhists find it a realistic, and even liberating, view of life. This perspective derives from the concept of "no self."
