The Four Noble Truths
 

Friends:

The 4 Noble Truths are Absolutes!

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 truth ...

The 2nd Noble Truth: Craving is the Cause!
No other source causes pain, than craving,
Nothing else provides craving, than pain ...
This utter certainty in producing pain:
Is why it is considered an absolute truth!

The 3rd Noble Truth: Suffering can End!
There is no pure peace except Nibbāna,
Nibbāna cannot be anything but peace ...
This certainty that it is perfect peace:
Is what is reckoned as an absolute truth.

The 4th Noble Truth: By the Noble Way!
No outlet is there other than the Noble Way,
Nor fails the Noble Way ever to be escape ...
This sure status as the one and only exit:
Has made it recognized as absolute truth.

This genuinely irrefutable infallibility,
Which is their true essential core,
Is what the wise declare to be
The Truth's meaning common to all four!
Vism 496
