Four Noble Truths
Life as we know it ultimately is or leads to suffering/uneasiness in one way or another.
Suffering is caused by craving or attachments to worldly pleasures of all kinds. This is often expressed as a deluded clinging to a certain sense of existence, to selfhood, or to the things or phenomena that we consider the cause of happiness or unhappiness.
Suffering ends when craving ends, when one is freed from desire. This is achieved by eliminating all delusion, thereby reaching a liberated state of Enlightenment.
Reaching this liberated state is achieved by following the path laid out by *"a teacher"* (the Buddha).
