The 3 characteristics of the existence in Buddhism
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- anicca. Everything is limited to a certain duration and, consequently, liable to disappear.
- dukkha. Everything is unsatisfactory. There is nothing that can be relied upon, there is nothing that can bring true happiness.
- anatta. Everything is deprived of a self. There is no self-inherent entity, nothing that can be controlled.
Even if we forget this when we are immersed into one moment of pleasure, each of us is aware that existence is filled with sufferings, worries, dissatisfactions of all kinds, and that these never stop.
