4: The Four Noble Truths are probably the most basic tenets: That every being that can suffer does suffer at some point and in some ways, that we humans cause our own suffering, that the cause of our suffering is clinging (to a wide variety of things, most notably mistaken beliefs), and that the practice described by the Buddha (known as the 8-fold path) is the way to end the clinging and therefore end the suffering.
5: THE founder of buddhism is prince Siddhartha, better known today as Buddha. | Prince Siddhartha left Nepal (in the Himalayan mountain range) at the age of 29 years old, crossed over to ancient India and eventually gained Enlightenment (Bodhi) at the age of 35 years old, at a place subsequently named as Bodhi Gaya. He became the Buddha.
