The Japanese Wikipedia page for 仕方がない has a brief section on the cultural background.
The Japanese Wikipedia page for がまん is very brief however the English page has a bit more information. As がまん is a teaching of Zen Buddhism you could direct your further research in that direction.
The Wikipedia pages contain references which may provide you with further information.
