Dukkha (suffering): Human life is full of suffering.
Trisha (Desire) : The cause of suffering is desire or craving.
Dukkha-nirodh : It is Possible to end suffering.

1) β€œAll that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon…. If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”
― Gautama Buddha
