One way to see the origin of suffering is to see that it is the “craving for sensual pleasures (kāma)”.
– An average human thinks that sensual pleasures are worth pursuing.
– The Buddha taught that that mindset arises because of avijjā, not realizing that WILL lead to eventual suffering.

This is the “previously unheard teachings of the Buddha.”
