First noble truth states that
Eight types of suffering are:
The suffering of birth.
The suffering of old age.
The suffering of illness.
The suffering of death.
The suffering of encountering what is unpleasant.
The suffering of separation from what is pleasant.
The suffering of not getting what one wants.
The suffering of the five appropriated aggregates.
I hope I am not wrong in enlisting them like that.
Following Noble eightfold path is the way to end the above eight sufferings (dukkha).
So my doubts are…
- Do all the eight sufferings end simultaneously when birth is ended?(as in cutting the root itself) Or are they ended gradually?
- If they are ended gradually then how does every single one of those 8 sufferings end? and is there any sequence for them in which they are ended?
Can someone kindly explain? Or point me directions as to where to look? Or as to what am I missing? Or mention any sutta related?
Thank you for your time!
