Dukkha, often translated as “suffering,” is at the heart of the four noble truths of Buddhism. But dukkha is about much more than suffering: it also means stress, unhappiness, and dissatisfaction. Its opposite is sukha, which means pleasure, happiness, and comfort.
In this Buddha Basics episode no. 1, we look at how there are lots of Buddhas, an infinite number of Buddhas, and who’s who. This is the first episode of our Buddha Basics series which looks at the basics of Buddhism as never expressed before, featuring the irreverent comments of Reverend Jundo, a real Zen Roshi. No Buddha BS here.
