【Intent of Liberation】- Truly understanding suffering
Now that you understand the attributes of suffering, you will therefore want to be liberated from suffering. Where is this root of suffering? It would be these two things, afflictions and karma, which are in turn ignorance and actions. These are the roots to cyclic existence. Suppose you do not even know the root to cyclic existence, or perhaps you may know but you are not skilled at it. This does not mean that you know it imprecisely. You understood it while it is explained, but the mind became completely blurred afterwards. This is useless. Perhaps you can explain it to others, but after you explain what the principles are referring to, where is it still? It is still just in the text book. "I have attained a Ph.D. for my thesis!" However, what are the subjective aspects that it is pointing to within the mind? These would seem to be two irrelevant phenomena. Then it would be futile.
