SN.23.15. Dukkhasutta ("Suffering")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

Seated to one side, Venerable Rādha said to the Buddha:

“Sir, they speak of this thing called ‘suffering’. What is suffering?”

“Rādha, form, feeling, perception, choices, and consciousness are suffering.

Seeing this … They understand: ‘… there is no return to any state of existence.’”
