Nirodha is a foundational concept in Buddhism, as the third of the Four Noble Truths given by the Buddha in his first teaching upon his awakening. It is the end of suffering and its causes. According to Thubten Chodron, Nirodha is the final disappearance of all bad experiences and their causes in such a way that they can no longer occur again.[1]
