  2. 2. All our life is sufferings?Some people say, "All our life is sufferings!".Is it true?Buddha taught how to be liberated from sufferingsBuddha taught how to be liberated from sufferingsthrough The Four Noble Truths as the first dharmawheel (the second dharma wheel is The Heart Sutra)immediately after his enlightenment and showed thefour truths of sufferings.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  3. 3. The Four Noble TruthsThe four noble truths are:1. The truth of suffering2. The truth of the origin of suffering2. The truth of the origin of suffering3. The truth of the cessation of suffering4. The truth of the path leading to the cessation ofsufferingThrough the four noble truths, Buddha shared hisown experience of how he attained enlightenment.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  4. 4. Liberation from sufferingsIt is a fact that many people suffer in this world.However, I dont think that Buddha said, "All ourlife is sufferings!". Thats because Buddha explainedthat there is a solution of being liberated fromthat there is a solution of being liberated fromsufferings through The Four Noble Truths. And heshowed the evidence through his actual experience.So, Buddha never said that our life is 100%sufferings and everyone cant avoid sufferings.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  5. 5. A choice between two thingsInstead, Buddha said that its up to you whether youbecome happy or suffer. This means a choicebetween two things which are as follows:1. If you take self-centered attitudes without1. If you take self-centered attitudes withoutunderstanding the wisdom of Interdependence,you will suffer.2. If you practice compassion by understanding thewisdom of Interdependence (or evenunconsciously), you will be happy.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  6. 6. You are your own master!Buddha clearly mentioned, "You are your ownmaster!". I think this means that your life depends onyour choice and that you should cultivate your lifeon your own. Furthermore, I believe that "You"on your own. Furthermore, I believe that "You"means consciousness and "your" means body andmind. So, Buddha teaching must be that your future(whether happy or unhappy) entirely depends on howwell your consciousness can control your body andmind.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.

  7. 7. Which life option will you choose?Buddha showed us 2 options which are the path tohappiness and the path to sufferings. Each of ushave a right to choose. Therefore, we cant blameothers for our sufferings. Because our sufferings areothers for our sufferings. Because our sufferings areour own creation.Well, which life option will you choose?Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama. All rights reserved.Copyright © 2013, Hitoshi Tsuchiyama.
