The Wheel of Life
Our lives begin with the suffering of birth and end
with the suffering of death; between these two, there are many different
consequences of aging and many unfortunate events. This is suffering,
the first of the four noble truths, which we do not want—the problem
we want to overcome. It is important to investigate whether there
is any way to surmount such suffering or not. To understand this,
it is necessary to investigate what the causes of our situation are.
