The 4 Noble Truths
The 1st Noble Truth: This is Suffering!
There is no
pain, that does not torment!
And nothing that is not pain torments...
This certainty, that this being torments:
Is what makes it an absolute
The 2nd Noble Truth: Craving is the Cause!
No other source causes pain, than
Nothing else provides craving, than pain ...
This utter certainty in producing pain:
Is why it is considered an absolute
The 3rd Noble Truth: Suffering can End!
There is no pure peace except
Nibbāna cannot be anything but peace ...
This certainty that it is perfect peace:
Is what is reckoned as an absolute
The 4th Noble Truth: By the Noble Way!
No outlet is there other than the
Nor fails the Noble Way ever to be escape ...
This sure status as the one and only exit:
Has made it recognized as absolute
This genuinely irrefutable infallibility,
Which is their true essential core,
Is what the wise declare to be
meaning common to all four!
