Cessation of Suffering

Cessation of Suffering should be one of the major take-away of any religion. Buddhism suggests that there is dependence amongst actions and there exists a casual link amongst all the actions and the results thereof. The concept is not simplistic marking “Individual Cause” and “Individual Result” but is wholesome and multidimensional in nature. To explain this, Miteiya does not use any of the Buddhist terms but rather use the characters of Mahabharata as symbols of various psyches and emotions. Sufferings can cease only when the source of suffering is permanently resolved through waging the “Battle of Kurukshetra”. Epic of Mahabharata encompasses complete human life. Understanding each of the character and subduing them is the key to “Cessation of Sufferings”.

Miteiya does not use popular Buddhist terms but takes characters of Mahabharata to teach the reasons of sufferings and the mechanism to cease them.

Miteiya speaks about Jarasandh, which means Duality. Miteiya also suggests that Ignorance is blissful and sorrow-less but a wise man can eliminate his sufferings through wisdom rather than remaining in the “Ignorant and Pseudo-Bliss”. Miteiya says that when dam and Eve were ignorant, they had no suffering. But it is destiny of human to be wise and super-powerful. The dissatisfaction in the cause is the real reason of “Sorrow and Sufferings”.

Since the audience for this subject has been simple Sravakas, simplistic examples are quoted. However Miteiya goes deeper in his simplistic manner and explains this areas beautifully using the myths of existing religions.
