This wish of all beings, to be free from suffering is also the origin of religion. When scientists discovered that 98% of our DNA is not junk (it is regulatory DNA) a new door opened, and now we are seeing extraordinarily rapid progress in genetic engineering for the production of lab-grown meat and milk (no more animal cruelty), and medical treatments such as the reconstruction of body parts (want to live forever?), and hundreds of new pest-resistant vegetables (no absorbed pesticide sprays), and many other revolutionary applications.
Many aspects of ethical teaching in Buddhism seem to coincide with biblical teaching; this prompts even serious people, from both the Buddhist and the Christian side, to assume that these religions are in essence the same. One of the most powerful techniques for finding meaning for our suffering is complete acceptance of a Super Meaning, an unconditional suffering, unexplainable purpose.

This paper attempts to study the concept of suffering in Buddhism in deal with suffering the light of the five precepts, the law of moral causation and suffering which will be then compared with Christianity. Christianity not only offers salvation and victory over the bondage of sin, sinful desires and passions but also gives a new hope for the ultimate freedom from suffering.
