Buddhism teaches about suffering its origin, cessation and path. That’s what is taught in temples around the world. Buddha’s teaching goes back 2500 years ago.

Four Noble Truths contain the essence of the Buddha’s teachings. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree.

At the core of Buddhism is the belief in the Four Noble Truths. Believed to have been conceived by Siddhartha Gautama, or Buddha, these four truths are The Truth of Suffering, The Truth of the Cause of Suffering, The Truth of the End of Suffering, and The Truth of the Path that Leads to the End of Suffering.
