Three Types of Duhka
suffering at suffering
suffering at impermanence
suffering at conditioned existence
avoid harming, stealing, mistruths, intoxicants, sexual misconduct
the wheel of life
Undertaking this and leaving that
Enter into the teaching of the Buddha.
Like an elephant in a thatch house,
Destroy the forces of the Lord of Death.
Those who with thorough conscientiousness
Practice this disciplinary doctrine
Will forsake the wheel of birth,
Bringing suffering to an end.

Suffering is like ropeburn....
You just have to let go.
