10 Basic Buddhist Beliefs

Everyone would like to lead a happier life, but few know what that would mean or how to accomplish it.
Our emotions and attitudes affect how we feel. With training, we can rid ourselves of negative ones and develop those that are healthier and more positive. Doing that will make our lives happier and more fulfilling.
Disturbing emotions such as anger, fear, greed and attachment make us lose peace of mind and self-control. With training, we can free ourselves from being under their control.
Acting compulsively out of anger or greed creates problems for us and leads to unhappiness. With training, we can learn to calm down, think clearly and act wisely.
Positive emotions such as love, compassion, patience and understanding help us remain calm, open and clear, and bring us more happiness. With training, we can learn to develop them.
Self-centered, selfish behavior and thought close us off from others and make us unhappy. With training, we can overcome them.
Realizing that we are all interconnected and that our survival depends on each other opens our hearts and minds, helps us develop concern for others, and brings us more happiness.
Most of what we perceive in ourselves and in others are projections of fantasy, based on confusion. When we believe that our projections correspond to reality, we create problems for ourselves and others.
With correct understanding, we can rid ourselves of confusion and see reality. This enables us to deal calmly and wisely with whatever happens in life.
Working on ourselves to become a better person is a life-long challenge, but the most meaningful thing we can do with our lives.

Happiness is something we’d all like to feel no matter what’s going on. But how to be a basically happy person, able to deal with whatever happens in life? Here are some Buddhist tips:

Make some quiet time each day – calm down by focusing on your breath.
When with others, be mindful of how you behave and speak; when by yourself, be mindful of what’s going on in your mind – try to act, speak and think in constructive ways.
Do something nice for someone every day – have sincere concern for their happiness.
Be generous with others – it will boost your feeling of self-worth.
Focus on your own and others’ strong points – make helpful suggestions when problems arise.
Let go of wrongs that others have done – practice forgiveness.
Let go of your own mistakes – forgive yourself.

Being happy doesn’t come from nowhere; you have to work on it. But with practice, everyone can lead a happier life.

How to Find Peace of Mind


How to relieve stress? While a certain amount of stress in our lives is normal and even necessary, excessive stress can interfere with normal daily activities and take a toll on our personal lives and health. Today we at Bright Side invite you to try an ancient Japanese technique of self-relaxation that will not take you more than 5 minutes and can be done just about anywhere. To practice the technique, it is important to understand that each of the fingers of our hand represents a different feeling or attitude.
- The thumb helps combat emotions like anxiety and worry. The index can help you combat fear. The middle finger helps you control anger and resentment.
- The ring finger can help you fight depression and sadness. Also, it’s responsible for making you more decisive. And the pinky helps to calm anxiety and increases optimism and confidence. This finger represents self-esteem.
- To harmonize the life energy in the body, grasp the finger with the opposite hand, wrapping all the fingers and thumb around it. Now hold each finger for one to two minutes.
- If you want to calm your mind, slightly press in the center of the palm with the thumb of the opposite hand and hold it for at least one minute.
- Practice this technique every day to stay calm and re-establish the balance within yoursel
