The Four Noble Truths

Mary Kullman

Mary Kullman, Present Moment Sangha Co-Leader and Mindfulness Meditation Teacher leads you through a series of Dharma Talks about the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths are the core of the Buddha’s teaching. Additional talks about the Noble Eight-fold Path will follow as they are presented at future sangha meetings.

Four Noble Truths Overview


The First Noble Truth is suffering (dukkha). We all suffer to some extent.

The Second Noble Truth is the origins, roots, nature, creation or arising of suffering. After we touch our suffering, we need to look deeply into it to see how it came to be.

The Third Noble Truth is cessation of creating suffering by refraining from doing the things that makes us suffer. Healing is possible.

The Fourth Noble Truth is the path that leads to refraining from doing things that cause us to suffer. The Buddha called it the Noble Eightfold Path.
