First truth: [Existence is] dukkha (“suffering” both mental and physical).
Second truth: Samudaya [the cause] of dukkha is tanha/trsna (“thirst”/greed) conditioned by Avijja (“ignorance” of the reality of self), upadana (clinging), and a cluster of other mental, biological, and physical factors. 
 Third truth: Nirodha (cessation) of dukkha is possible by following the path to nirvana. 
Fourth truth: Magga (the path) or the "Noble Eightfold Path " provides the way to Nirvana"
