The Four Noble Truths

There is suffering in the world. To live is to suffer (dukkha). The cause of suffering is self_centered desire and attachments (Tanha). The solution is to eliminate desire and attachments (Nirvana). To reach nirvana, one must follow the Eightfold path. The Four Noble Truths were written in 437 B.C. The Four Noble Truths leave much left to explain.
