Each of the aggregates of individuality is in a constant flux and there is no one’s ‘own-ness’ in any of them. Therefore the Buddhist dictum ‘that which is impermanent is suffering’ is to be considered as a universal truth. Suffering one has to encounter throughout one’s life is self-evident for the most part, and needs no elaboration. In other words, one is overwhelmed by unsatisfactory and conflicting situations that one experiences in one’s day to day life and needs no comment. Because the internal and external conflicts that one has to face throughout one’s life are signified by the concept of suffering in Buddhism, some are of the opinion that ‘conflict’ is the best English word that carries full import of the Pali word.
In different stages of the development of the concept different names were given for its identification. Individual soul or microcosmic soul (pratyagàtman or pudgalàtman) was differentiated from macrocosmic soul (jagadàtman). The individual souls were considered as the manifestations of the macrocosmic soul. The whole universe is a manifestation of the macrocosm. It is said, in the beginning Sat (Being) was alone, without a second. It thought: “May I be many”. Now it diversified into the three elements: fire (tejas), water (àp), earth (prthivi) and then into others until organic bodies, including those of human beings, have come into being.

The dog would not be able to appease its hunger by gnawing the meatless bone.
