Suffering vs Pain: Canonical references

Post by 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

Call me Stephen, please. May you be well and happy. :heart:

Know right from wrong — and their consequences — and act accordingly, always doing your very best.

The Path begins with the acknowledgement of Truth; it ends in Freedom; and in between is a huge amount of Effort.
Meanwhile, care about others.
