General definition (in Buddhism)

[Duhkhasatya in Buddhism glossaries]

Duḥkhasatya (दुःखसत्य) refers to the four “aspects in the truth of suffering” as defined in the Dharma-saṃgraha (section 97):

  1. anityatā (relating to impermanence),
  2. duḥkhata (relating to suffering),
  3. śūnyata (relating to emptiness),
  4. anātmata (relating to no-self).

The Dharma-samgraha (Dharmasangraha) is an extensive glossary of Buddhist technical terms in Sanskrit (eg., duḥkha-satya). The work is attributed to Nagarjuna who lived around the 2nd century A.D.
