Jay Chikyo Weik offers a presentation on the Four Noble Truths, given at the Toledo Zen Center on November 11, 2007. This is the third podcast of a three-part series.
"The second truth is that there is a cause for that [suffering]. There's a very specific thing that creates that sense of unsatisfaction. It's not just the way things are, actually. There's a reason why that's the way the experience communicates to us. And to make it as simple as we can, the cause of that suffering is basically craving, or thirst."
