The Noble Truth is the first Dhamma explained by The Buddha to His Disciples. It consists of:

  1. The truth is Suffering (Dukkha in Pali term)
    Meaning that being born is a Dukkha (Pali word means Suffering). It may sound pessimistic but many time the Truth is like a bitter pill. Since any living being could not escape from Birth, Being Old, Contracted a disease/diseases and Death. In addition, The Buddha told His Disciples Three other kind of Suffering, which are the followings:
    – Association with the Unpleasant
    – Separation from the beloved
    – Not to obtain one’s desire
    In brief, Grasping is Suffering.
  2. The cause of suffering (Samudaya in Pali term)
    is basically is the Craving feeling.  For example craving of sensual pleasure, existence and non-existence.
  3. The cessation of suffering (Nirodha in Pali term)
    is the complete extinction of that Craving by giving it up, detach and liberate from it.
  4. The path leading to the cessation of suffering (Magga in Pali term)
    That is The Eight-fold Path.

That said, let’s look at The Eight-fold Path which The Buddha suggested to his disciples.
