Buddha believed that we are temporal creations born to lives of sorrow and suffering.  This suffering is a result of selfish desires that chain people to the wheel of insubstantial impermanent things.  Living according to the Dharma will help one eliminate these desires thus leading you to Nirvana.  According to Buddha, the way to deliverance is summed up in four noble truths:

 

  1. The universality of suffering - People discover through rebirth, aging, and death that life is full of sorrow.  We suffer this sorrow until deliverance is achieved.

  2. The origin of suffering - Suffering is caused by the false desires of the senses that have been deceived into clinging to the impermanent world.  The quest for immortality further aggravates human suffering.

  3. The overcoming of suffering - If false desires cause suffering, then the desires need to be suppressed, abandoned, or rejected in order to nullify their effects.  Ignorance of the way of deliverance and the delusion that there is a permanent self are the primary cause of suffering.

  4. The way leading to the suppression of suffering - The noble eightfold path is a sacred path with eight branches called right views of understanding, right aspirations, right speech, right conduct or action, right livelihood, right effort or endeavor, right mind control or concentration, and right mindfulness.  These eight branches are not stages that can be lived out in succession or isolation from one another.  They are different dimensions of a total way of life.

SmileYes, Dear Sean it is very hard,difficult to make up our mind or be free from some evils,couldm't get free from passion,lust,voluptuousness and e.t.c. by real But if we were understand the priciples of the Dharma,at least we can practise them because of our intelligence and consciousness all the time enlighten when we have in hell of our mind. Conclusion mind was inhibited by our brain so we get better from sadness,sorrow.SmileIn the event of we agreed determind something bad some principles of Dharma could help us inhibited from those event .Smile
