Best Answer

The four noble truths:

1. The truth of suffering (dukkha). All beings suffer, and life in general is ultimately found to be unsatisfactory, because of impermanence.

2. The cause of suffering is desire and attachment.

3. The cessation (nirodha) of suffering can be attained.

4. There is a path (marga) to the cessation of suffering.
