Unlocking the Mysteries of Birth and Death

This work offers fascinating perspectives on birth, aging, sickness and death, known in Buddhism as the four universal sufferings that all human beings must bear. Without fully understanding life’s most elemental ordeals, Ikeda says, “we can neither live meaningfully nor die in peace.” In fact, without suffering—as well as our basic human impulses, which lie at the root of all suffering—there can be no enlightenment.
