This book is a translation of chapter 3 of Buddhadhamma, explaining the Buddha’s key teaching on the Three Characteristics (tilakkhaṇa): impermanence (anicca), suffering/stress (dukkha), and not-self (anattā).
This book clarifies the meaning of the term dukkha, which has led to many misunderstandings through inadequate translations. For example, how many times have we heard the confusing rendering of ‘All life is suffering’? Similarly, the book offers a comprehensive explanation of the term anattā (‘not-self’), which can be perplexing to students new to Buddhism.
