Disciplines of the Spirit ("Naramota") #4: Suffering/Tragedy
Date:
Aug. 16, 1961
Description:
Aug. 16, 1961. Running time: 1:00:00. Thurman develops a working definition of suffering, equating pain to any sort of failure. He draws out the great irony that the fact of death guarantees man's freedom of choice. It gives us an alternative and compels us to do something more than "just die."
