Origin (Skt. samudaya; Tib. ཀུན་འབྱུང་, kunjung, Wyl. kun 'byung) — the second of the Four Truths of the Noble Ones taught by Buddha Shakyamuni in his first teaching:
- What is the origin of suffering? It is the craving that perpetuates existence, which is attended upon by the passion for enjoyment, and which finds pleasures here and there. That is the origin of suffering.
Craving is presented here as the most obvious cause of suffering but it is not the only one. The origin of suffering can also be said to consist of karma and destructive emotions.
