Excerpt About Duality
The Ultimate Cause of SufferingSo we can say that the ultimate cause of suffering is duality, or, more precisely, attachment to differentiated phenomena. If we can abide in our knowledge that the fundamental reality is nondifferentiated, then we might not prefer one thing over another. If our mind does not prefer one thing over another then there is no attachment. Whatever happens, happens. Death, life, good, bad, you, other is all one thing. We know they are ultimately conceptual differentiations; they don't absolutely exist. So there is no attachment to them at all. No attachment means no suffering.
