Among textual riches of the Theravada tradition of Buddhism is the Buddha’s teaching on the origins of suffering. Contemplate the Therigatha, poems of women’s enlightenment; the Dhammapada, verses of advice and inspiration; and the Discourse to the Kalamas, where the Buddha outlines a spiritual path of direct experience and observation.
