Buddhism was founded in India over 2500 years ago by Prince Siddhartha who became the historical Buddha. His teachings on how to work with mind through ethical discipline and meditation practice have spread throughout the world. As a complete spiritual path, he taught for over 40 years on many topics from morality to philosophy, to what we now call psychology and epistemology. Buddhism is not a religion in that it is non-theistic, focusing on the evolution of a person from confusion through their transformation to a more present, kind and wakeful state.
Mindworks presents articles on many aspects of the Buddhist path. As a spiritual practice, Buddhist teachings are imminently practical; their insights apply to not only formal meditation practice but to all aspects of life. At its essence, Buddhism deals with the core problems of life: how to overcome suffering, how to understand the world and our place in it, and ultimately how to help ourselves and others lead a life of clarity and joy.
Mindworks Journey to Well-Being presents many aspects of the Buddhist path, in secular, accessible language that everyone can relate to. And our Journey to Compassion embraces the challenge of how to benefit ourselves and others through the more advanced practices of loving-kindness and compassion.
