Can't remember reading anywhere that Buddha gives any command. Even when it comes to Precepts, you can break it but you have to shoulder responsibility for your action. Who is Buddha to give commands?The Buddha was very clear about this. So was Christ. He commanded his disciples to forgive - it was no request.
Presently, in Malay, duka means to be filled with sadness and this duka, I heard, is a word borrowed from the Indians. Whatever word it is, never mind, suffering is suffering. If it is there, it is there. If it can be eradicated, it can be eradicated. The words used do not matter.Apparently the Buddha spoke the ancient Indian language called Pali. Also, there is no one word equivalent for 'dukkha'.
What does Dukkha mean? Is there a Pali word for suffering and did he use it?
