The Ancient Philosophy
Buddhism is an ancient philosophy, one of the great world religions, and the source for mindfulness meditation and the cultural movement it has inspired that is making a huge impact on society from healthcare to education to corporate boardrooms. Buddhism appeals to so many of us because it speaks a universal language of wisdom, goodness, and a focused and quiet mind that helps us to cope with a loud and chaotic world. Buddhism and mindfulness will likely to grow in popularity as we become more distracted by our technologies, more disconnected from our bodies and each other, and live in an increasingly uncertain world. The Buddha’s message teaches that happiness is our natural birthright. We don’t need anything from the outside. We are already complete.
