Burden can be something which is physically difficult to carry or emotionally tough to overcome. Burden can also mean a duty, a task or responsibility to take charge of. The word supposedly stems from the old English word "brythen." The perfect example of a burden which was emotionally painful as well as physically difficult to carry was the heavy cross which Jesus Christ had to bear during the crucifixion.

In the law parlance, burden pertains to any kind of restriction on the usage of land including zonal regulations. In poetic language, speech or literature, the central idea or the theme of the passage is referred to as burden or a gist. Burden is also an amount of weight a ship can bear.
