What is this? This Sanskrit word translates to “suffering” “pain” ” restriction”
This is NOT a “physical” pain or restriction. It is a mental restriction.
Duhkha works on our minds. It a quality of mind that gives us a feeling of being “restricted” Its where we experience a limitation, a “squeezing” so to speak…
It is not physical pain, yet it can be a mental suffering associated with illness.
It could manifest as anxiety or stress… of trying to hold onto things – especially things that are constantly changing (thoughts, emotions, anyone?)
It can be a basic feeling of unsatisfactoriness towards our life – and it pervades all Humans because all forms of life are constantly changing… Nature is always in a state of flux…
Suffering begins in our minds…
It starts in our minds my friends!
Maybe due to almost 90,000 thoughts/ day that we have?
There is both happiness and sorrow in the world… neither are permanent because they both are subject to change.
W all have Duhkha … we all experience mental suffering..
How are you handling your Duhkha ?
How about a quick yoga stretch? 20 minutes a day helps reduce physical and mental restrictions!
This video (1/2 lecture and 1/2 yoga stretches) was made due to my frustrations of constant negativity that I see on Social Media….
This video was spur of the moment as I need a quick stretch to handle MY Duhkha…
