As the Buddha famously said, life is suffering. Different religious and philosophical traditions have long debated about whether suffering is inevitable or necessary to the human experience and how to best reduce, avoid, or endure the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual distress encountered in day-to-day life.

We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
