DUKKHA (‘SUFFERING’) & SPIRITUALITY:
A Christian Reflection
Dukkha– conventionally translated into English as ‘suffering’ – is a fundamental Buddhist concept upon which the Four Noble Truths is built on. This talk is a reflection on conversations with Cambodian monks and lay Buddhists on dukkha and its role in cultivating spirituality, through the lens of Henri Nouwen’s writing on spirituality of the Desert Fathers (Christian ascetics in 3-4th century A.D.).
