Life is full of suffering (dukkha);
Suffering is caused by desire and craving;
One can be free from this suffering by removing desire and craving;
The way to eliminate desire and to get free from the cycle of birth and death is by following the Eight-Fold Path.
The Eight-Fold Path consists of: right understanding, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right awareness, and right concentration. By following the above path, one can attain Nirvana or salvation, which would free the soul from suffering and the cycle of birth and death.

The Four Noble Truths ni) are regarded as the central doctrine of the Buddhist tradition, and are said to provide a conceptual framework for all of Buddhist thought. These four truths explain the nature of dukkha (Pali; commonly translated as "suffering", "anxiety", "stress", "dissatisfaction"), its causes, and how it can be overcome.

According to the Buddhist tradition, the Buddha first taught the four noble truths in the very first teaching he gave after he attained enlightenment, as recorded in the discourse Setting in Motion the Wheel of the Dharma (Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta), and he further clarified their meaning in many subsequent teachings.
