Apologies that I cannot recall the source, but I have read the opinion that dukkha-dukkha (suffering of suffering), viparinama-dukkha (suffering due to change) and sankhara-dukkha (suffering due to formations) are not to be regarded different sets/subsets of suffering, but rather, progressively more refined understandings of dukkha.


Perhaps, but the fact remains that it's all dukkha, evidenced by the suffix "dukkha" on each of the three types.

Spiny

it may refer to where the pain begins, if physical it is only the reaction one can deal with, if mental one, can remove the problem causing the dukkha.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
