Speaker: Joni Kay Rose
“Murphy’s Law and Buddha’s First Noble Truth”
While Buddha’s First Noble Truth, dukkha in
Pali, is commonly translated as “suffering,” most contemporary Buddhist
scholars now acknowledge it encompasses much more than that. Ms. Rose compares dukkha
with Murphy’s Law: Things have a way of screwing up. Thus does the express
train get stuck behind the local and people end up in positions they’re
entirely unsuited for. The First Noble Truth teaches us to perceive life as it
really is, not a fantasized image of how we think things ought to be. Only then
can we take action, individually and collectively, to make the changes that
need to be made.
