  1. In Buddhism, the main words are mind, dissatisfaction or anxiety, freedom. If you try to express the meaning of the Buddhist teaching in one phrase, it will be: the teaching of freeing the mind from dissatisfaction, anxiety.

    This is what the four main truths of Buddhism say:

    1. There are all sorts of worries in life all the time.

    2. There are reasons for your worries. Hatred, addiction, and the mind's distortion of reality.

    3. If you remove the causes of anxiety, then no worries can arise.

    4. To remove the causes, you need to follow a certain path — do the right things, say the right words, think the right thoughts.

    The realm of life where all events and minds are connected by causes, where everything is constantly moving and changing, is called samsara. In samsara, everything appears with signs of mutability, interdependence. Therefore, it is impossible to find anything that will always remain pleasant.

    The sphere where nothing moves, does not change, does not arise, causal relationships do not work, is called nirvana. Since nothing occurs there, there are no unpleasant states.

    A person can adjust and train his mind in such a way that he becomes free from samsara and anxiety. He will renounce hatred, become completely impartial, learn to perceive reality without distortion. That is, all the changing elements of samsara will disappear in the mind of a person and only one fixed element of nirvana will remain. Such a person is called a Buddha.
