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

My philosophy is simple: saying 'yes' to the positive and 'no' to the negative; because the positive is so much better than the negative.
