A.10_065 Pa.thama Sukha Sutta What is the definition of happiness and suffering according to the Dhammavinaya? Birth is suffering because birth leads to: 1. cold; 2. heat; 3. hunger; 4. thirst; 5. defecation; 6. urination; 7. contact with fire; 8. contact with the rod; 9. contact with weapons, and; 10. the anger (towards us) of friends and relatives. If you are not born, you are free of all these things and can thus be happy. 38/207 Dasaka Nipaata, Dutiya Pa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.i.
