Sufferings can be caused by other people. So can sufferings be caused by yourself if you don't well handle things that are supposed to. Take a good health for example. If you don't have proper exercise after long hours' work, you will suffer from something to your health etc...

It is cent per cent true. Most of the sufferings are self made and only in exceptional cases, it is due to others. Thanks for your response.

Mostly, i would attribute sufferings to the no. 2 that you have stated. We suffer the consequences of our deeds and sometimes we donot even have the ability to recognise it. It's kind of self denial. As we sow , so we reap - it's as simple as that. Now, this could be indirectly related to no. 3. Many a times we force others or their actions and thought processes to take a turn that we would want. Lastly, i would go for Providence or the undefined force on which we have little or no control. Thank you for a nice discussion. PS: This comes from my practical experience.

YOu are absolutely right. Your statement we sow, so we reap. To substantiate your statement, we not only fail to recognize what we have created for ourselves, but fail to set it right. That furthers the agony.

For my opinion, it is a self made. Because it is us who wants to suffer, if we don't want to suffer, we will escape from any situation like that.Partially , we can avoid some people committed mistakes and we have to suffer as a cause, that is unfair advantage, but it is also i guess one source of suffering.
