Why do we have to suffer? (Jan 24, 2010)


Sometimes we encounter a difficult situation that no matter how hard we try, we are unable to change it for a very long time. We question the reasons for our inability to transform our lives despite sincere efforts and heartfelt prayers. And, at other times we encounter people, who for no fault of ours set out to hurt us. Despite our repeated questions to ourselves on what provoked that reaction from the other person, there seems no reasonable response to our query coming from any source. The situation makes no sense nor does our tormentor’s irrational behaviour.

Have you experienced this? I have; and the only logical answer was one I received after I began practising Buddhism, and is expressed in these lines from the writings of Nichiren Daishonin :

“If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.” (Nichiren quotes from the “Contemplation on the Mind-Ground Sutra”)

Karma has a way of catching up with us one way or another. It may take its own sweet time to turn up on our doorstep, but knock on our door it will, and demand retribution for causes long forgotten! So, is there no way out but to suffer the effect of negative causes made, some of them even unintentional? The answer to that is in the passage above, but let’s talk more about that in this week’s blog.

One thought on “Why do we have to suffer? (Jan 24, 2010)

  1. I totally agree and very well put…and certainly chanting on these issues gives one clarity and peace of mind to some extent
