In Pain and Suffering, we explore the relationship between these two afflictions as we look deeply into how our ego drives us ever towards disappointment and regret. However, we don't leave the reader with just an understanding of how we suffer and why we have pain. We take a serious look at how, with diligence and patience, we can apply a specific program of meditation or contemplative practice to escape or at the very least, lessen our suffering.

Pain and Suffering in Buddhism isn't just for Buddhists. It's for anyone who has ever wondered, "Why is this happening to me?"
