The Four Noble Truths, in more detail.
Dissatisfaction implies that
we naturally know something.
We know there is a cause
but are confused about what this is.
We know we are holding onto a mistaken view.
This is the cause of our dissatisfaction.
Knowing we are not clear, we seek clarity.
We need a complete system
to dissolve the obscurations
to that clarity.
When we are convinced, through testing,
that the system is sound,
we resolve to never give up.
