Put very briefly, the Buddha taught a way out of suffering. The foundation of his teachings are the Four Noble Truths, his discoveries regarding the nature, origin, and cessation of suffering. The Fourth Noble Truth lays out the EightFold Path, the Buddha's teachings on how to free ourselves from the the cycle of suffering. Central to the Eightfold path is the practice of meditation, of which there are many forms.

Buddhas teachings enable us to experience lasting happiness. By using suitable meditations, our theoretical knowledge turns into direct experience; additional methods secure attained levels of consciousness. The goal of Buddhas teachings is the full development of body, speech and mind. The teachings of Buddhism have remained a liberating gift to mankind for the last 2,500 years. Non-dogmatic and without any gods or commandments, they have enabled people to benefit both others and themselves. Especially today, with the many independent thinkers and new communication techniques, it has become possible to collect, organize and distribute Buddhist teachings, old as new, in attractive and fresh ways....

Based on his own experience, the Buddha saw that each human being had the capacity to purify the mind, develop infinite love and compassion and perfect understanding. He shifted attention from the heavens to the heart and encouraged us to find solutions to our problems through self-understanding
