Overcoming suffering

There is no one who does not suffer. He who suffers makes an effort to escape from actuality, and that escape only increases sorrow. But if through silent observation and patience, he discerns the true cause of suffering, that perception itself dissolves the very cause of suffering.

~ J. Krishnamurti, 16 June 1936.

Dear Srini

Wat a fantastic truth...We just identify ourselves with the suffering and get lost into it completely and fail to understand the reason and the situation right..As a result we are drawn into more suffering.
