Second Noble Truth–The Origin of Dukkha

Topics Include: 1) Craving as the origin of dukkha: craving for sensual pleasure. 2) Craving as tanha or thirst. 3) The Buddha’s question: what is the gratification that we get from pleasure? 4) How we get addicted to pleasant sensations and how it can lead to unskillful actions. 5) Understanding craving as a passing thought in the mind for small pleasures. 6) Bringing mindfulness to our habit patterns of desire and craving for sense pleasures.
