The Cessation of Suffering


The Third Noble Truth refers to Truth of the cessation of suffering. It says that suffering can be brought to an end through Nirodha. Nirodha means the unmaking of sensual yearning and attachment. It is the state in which one does not crave anymore and with the alleviation of craving, suffering also fades. It is a permanent state of peace, in which there is greed, hatred and delusion. It is the freedom from all worries, troubles, complexes, fabrications and ideas. With Nirvana, the round of rebirths comes to an end.
