The Four Noble Truths comprise the essence of Buddha's teachings, though they leave much left unexplained. They are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering. More simply put, suffering exists; it has a cause; it has an end; and it has a cause to bring about its end. The pleasure of Buddhism could not be denied,  The concept of pleasure is not denied, pursuit of pleasure can only continue what is ultimately an unquenchable thirst. The same logic belies an understanding of happiness. In the end, only aging, sickness, and death are certain and unavoidable. The Four Noble Truths are a contingency plan for dealing with the suffering humanity faces, suffering of a physical kind, or of a mental nature. The First Truth identifies the presence of suffering. Buddhists refer to craving pleasure, material goods, and immortality, all of which are wants that can never be satisfied. Buddhist believe in Karma, karma refers to good or bad actions a person takes during her lifetime. Good actions, which involve either the absence of bad actions, or actual positive acts, such as generosity, righteousness, and meditation, bring about happiness in the long run.


Today Buddhist are mainly called Monks, but they all still in the same believes and meditate, and they still believe in that meditation is a medicine for Stress.
