I have chosen to use Buddha. Buddha answers the problem of suffering in the Four Noble Truths. According to Buddha the most immediate cause of human suffering is ignorance, which closes the door to enlightenment. The person who is ruled by desires cannot be happy in an ever-changing world, because what happens is beyond's ones control. He addressing the Eightfold Path, which is design to show how to over suffering.
