End suffering

If you want to understand suffering you must look into the situation at hand.
The teachings say that wherever a problem arises it must be settled right there.

Where suffering lies is right where non-suffering will arise,
it ceases at the place where it arises.
If suffering arises you must contemplate right there,
you don’t have to run away.
You should settle the issue right there.
One who runs away from suffering out of fear is the most foolish person of all.
He will simply increases his stupidity endlessly.

We don’t meditate to see heaven, but to end suffering.
