The Five Pains


First is the pain we create for ourselves.
Second is the pain we create for others.
Third is the pain others create for us.
Fourth is the pain others create for themselves.

The first teaches humility.
The second teaches justice.
The third teaches forgiveness.
The fourth teaches compassion.

The fifth is the pain of not learning.
It teaches nothing.
