Doctrine of Buddhism :-

Gautam Buddha has prescribed the realisation of four Noble Truths or Aryasatyas:

these are the essence of Buddhism—

1. Life is full of sorrow (Dukha) : Sabbam Dukkam.

2. The sorrow is caused by desire of earthly things (Dukha Samudaya); Dwadash Nidan / Pratitya Samutpada,

3. This sorrow can be stopped (Dukha Nirodha) i.e. Nirvana.
