:namaste:

I have been troubled by negative thoughts in my mind for while, until I started looking into Buddhism and following Sakyamuni Buddha's path to end suffering. Theravada has and still is helping me greatly sustain inner peace through dedicated meditation. Also of course, following the Eightfold Path and reminding myself of verses from the Dhammapada.

It is great that I came across a forum containing other dedicated followers of Theravada. I look forward to learning more from all of you.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
