The Four Noble Truths
The Four Noble Truths is an illustration of suffering: its nature, its cause, its cessation and the way leading to cessation. Suffering exists as a result of sensual desires. We are prone to spoiling ourselves and we tend to struggle for acquisition endlessly. Once we realize the cause of suffering, we must learn how to end it. Since the mind is the source of all desires, we must uproot desire from the mind.
When we are free from all desires, we will see the Noble Path, the path that leads to Nirvana.
