Suffering vs Pain: Canonical references

Postby Shonin » Wed Jun 30, 2010 10:51 am

Does anyone have any Canonical references supporting the view that Buddha made a distinction between inevitable pain and suffering which is avoidable?

Many thanks

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Nelson Mandela

My philosophy is simple: saying 'yes' to the positive and 'no' to the negative.

With much metta,
