The First Noble Truth

Dukkha - Suffering

 

We are ourselves the cause of our own conditioning.
We create our own states of mind.
We, alone, are responsible for our moods and emotions.

Some say the first noble truth is "Life is suffering" yet Buddha did not say this. Loosely he said that our cravings and aversions lead to suffering.

And... to add to the question of what the First Noble Truth is about.... within Buddhist terms...

The Ten Fetters of Existence
Self-delusion
Doubt
Clinging to Ritual
Sensuous Lust
Ill Will
Greed for Fine Material Existence
Greed for Immaterial Existence
Conceit
Restlessness
Ignorance
