Greetings and welcome, Green.

:hello:

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Hi Green,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel. :smile:
