Suffering actually has many good qualities. For instance, experiencing suffering yourself can cause you to have more compassion for others. When you experience suffering it uses up your bad karma. It can cause you to renounce the suffering of samsara and develop a sincere wish for Liberation. It makes you want to avoid creating bad karma. It stops you from being arrogant. Suffering can have all these positive effects and more.

Khenpo Karten Rinpoche will give a public talk on transforming suffering into mental development on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at Manjushri Dharma Center, 724 Forest Ave., Pacific Grove, CA.. It will begin at 11:15 AM after the meditation practice.
