The Four Noble Truths
The Four Noble Truths are the base foundation of Buddhism:
The Truth of Suffering
(Dukkha)
(Samudaya)
(Nirhodha)
(Magga)
Often translated as, "Life is Suffering," this truth is based on the ending of all good things.

This truth also tells us that through our actions in this life, it may affect how suffering will be in our next life.

The question of this truth may be
"Are we not temporary, conditional and compound of many parts?"
"Life is knowingly impermanent, but are we, also, impermanent?"
From a lesson from Buddha, we can and have to understand life, death and ourselves.
This truth is based on our craving is always constant, as we always search for something more to make ourselves happy:
As fortunate as we are, we are never fully satisfied with what is given.
We are always clinging on to individuals around us, we are always hoping for a sense of security in ourselves and others.
Not only do we attach to others as individuals, but also to material.
This truth also states the origin of mans suffering, which may be attachment to material and desire for what we cannot have.

The third truth is based on a the aftermath of the first and second truth.
This truth tells us the 'cure' to the end of our suffering, and finding peace
Buddha's teaching is taught through practices and the end of the 'craving,' in reference to the second teaching.
When enlightened after this 'crave,' your enlightenment is
Nirvana
The Truth of the Cause
of Suffering
The Truth of the End of the Suffering
The Truth of the Path that frees us from Suffering
The path of this truth that sets us free is
The Noble Eightfold Path.
This truth is solely based on walking the path in which takes away the suffering, and concluding us to be the best we can be
