The Four Noble Truths comprise the core ideas of Buddhism. They do not merely impact Buddhism, they are Buddhism. Everything in Buddhism springs from these tenets. If you can fully understand and embody the four truths, there is nothing else needed to attain enlightenment. Such is the nature of the Four Noble Truths.

The Four Noble Truths describe the true nature of existence, and the path to living in harmony with that nature. The teaching of the Four Noble Truths was the first sermon given by the Buddha after he became enlightened. This first teaching is called "Setting the Wheel of Dharma in motion". It was given by him to his four friends that he was practicing asceticism with before he became enlightened and all four were at once convinced of its truths. Therefore, the Four Noble Truths are the core of Buddhism. It represents, at the highest level, what we beleive and what we strive for.

The Four Noble Truths, which include the Eightfold Path, describe the true nature of existence, and the means to live in harmony with that nature. By tradition, the preaching of the Four Noble Truths was the first sermon given by the Buddha, after he became the Awakened One. It could be said that The Four Noble Truths, and what they infer, are Buddhism itself. There are many traditions, schools, sects of Buddhism, but the Four Noble Truths are acknowledged in all of them, because they are foundational. They describe why Buddhism is needed, and what constitutes the essence of the practice of Buddhism. There may be various practices and ideas within Buddhism, but they are merely different expressions of the essence as expressed in the Four Noble Truths.
