The 4 Noble Truths in Short

Postby Kaccāni » Fri Feb 20, 2015 6:57 pm

Inspired by reading some text, this short version of the 4 noble truths appeared in my mind:

The Four Noble Truths
We suffer temporary things,
Arising on our clingings,
Cessation of our craving hath,
As goal the eightfold path.

:-)
Shush! I'm doing nose-picking practice!

Quite the short version of Noble Four Truths.
Very good.
I prefer other version
There is Suffering or Dukkha
There is Cause or Origin of Suffering or Dukkha
There is End of Suffering or Dukkha
There is Path out of Suffering or Dukkha
