    Just reading about buddhism, and how attachment is the cause of suffering, that different thoughts arise and we get attached to them, or the outside world. i see how this can cause internal suffering, but what does buddhism say on outside causes, like to other beings.

    I know doing bad things, but in depth what is their explanation of this, i dont guess they believe in sin or things like that.

    I think that ignorance is a big cause of suffering.

    Peace and love

    the cause of suffering is the conditions that resault from the motivations created by collectively by otherwise seemingly innocent thoughtlessness. what attatchemnt/desire does, is provide a handle by which we can be manipulated by the coerciveness of others.

    i'm not saying i know this about buddhism, i'm just saying this is what i have observed about life.
