    Somebody asked during Q&A last night if meditation can help cope with physical pain and I remember Aj. Pannyavaro answering it can reduce mental suffering induced by physical pain but won’t ease pain itself. If I heard him right he then went on to say something along the line of he’s lucky to have the pain or he should welcome it. Why so?
