Why hospitals have sick people?

Question : (Unedited)

what does buddhism say about evil in the world?... why is there evil in the world?

My comments:

Hi T,

It is in the first Noble Truth..."that existence is unsatisfactory" (Dukkha)

It is the very nature of this world...everything is impermanent, everything is unsatisfactory because of this impermanence, and everything is a reflection of the true nature of this existence which is of no substance.  These are the three characteristics of existence : impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, insubstantiality (Anicca, Dukkha, Anatta).

It is just like asking the following questions:
Why do all the hospitals have sick people?
Why do all jails have prisoners?

Smile from justinchoo :-)
