Using Buddha’s Teachings to Solve our Problems
From Buddhas teachings we can learn the principal cause of both happiness and problems. Buddha taught that all happiness and suffering are in the mind, not in the external world. It is very important to be able to distinguish on unpeaceful states of mine from peaceful states of mind.
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind.Problems will arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind.
To solve our human problems and enable us to find everlasting peace and happiness, Buddha gave the most profound teachings, known as Dharma, for us to use as practical advice. If we look in the mirror of Dharma, we can see how our attachment, anger, and especially our self grasping ignorance are the causes of all our problems and sufferings.
If we sincerely put these teachings in the practice, we will definitely solve all our problems and find the real meaning of our life.
