Four Noble Truths - BuddhismEdit
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Four Noble Truths are a Buddhist teaching.
- The First Noble Truth: Dukkha
- Life is full of suffering. Dukkha usually is translated as suffering. In life, we have illness, poverty, disease, old age and death. We cannot keep what we like and can not avoid what we do not like. If this is all we know we suffer.
- The Second Noble Truth: Samudaya
- There is a cause for suffering. The cause of suffering is desire and illusions that are based on ignorance. Because of ignorance wanting something leads clumsy actions, which in turn lead to suffering. Wanting life, wanting death, wanting things, wanting pleasure - all lead to suffering.
- The Third Noble Truth: Nirodha
- There is a state of mind free from suffering. By stopping the cravings, the suffering is stopped.
- The Fourth Noble Truth: Marga
- There is a way to end suffering. To end suffering we must end our cravings. The way to ending cravings is the Eightfold Path
