Life hacks from the Buddha
Life can be quite the unpredictable journey, filled with its share of highs and lows. Occasionally, we experience smooth stretches, only to abruptly encounter unexpected obstacles, or worse yet, collisions caused by others despite our cautious efforts.
Mindfulness, an age-old practice originating from the teachings of the Buddha some 2600 years ago, has gained significant popularity as a means of coping with the daily stresses and tribulations of life. However, the Buddha didn't limit his guidance to just mindfulness. He offered a broader range of approaches to help us navigate life's tumultuous path. He encouraged introspection, recognizing our own minds as the source of much of our stress and suffering. Additionally, he developed a comprehensive training regimen emphasizing the importance of kindness, maintaining a light grip on possessions and beliefs, and leading a compassionate life.
