Speaker: Greg Seton. Greg describes how we can view the experience of physical pain as an occasion for cultivating compassion, wisdom, and devotion to Dharma. The five-step process he suggests begins with acknowledging that the root of all suffering is the craving that perpetuates rebirth in samsara, in which all sentient beings are subject to the suffering of suffering, the suffering of change and the suffering of pervasive, conditioned existence. Since pain in samsara is unavoidable, we should accept and understand it as deeply as possible, viewing it as an opportunity to cultivate compassion for all beings.
