People think that they see the truth of dukkha only when they experience suffering. If that is so, how can they understand that experiencing calm (samādhi), the moments of bliss or delight (pīti), or of tranquility (passaddhi), are also dukkha? So long as moha is present and considers any of these experiences as pleasing, the Noble Truth of dukkha can’t be understood yet. Because people listen with defilements when they hear about the Noble Truth of dukkha, they think it is about experiencing bodily or mental suffering. In fact, that is dosa at work.
