A BUDDHIST APPROACH TO MENTAL HEALTH

In general we regard our physical health as the most important type of health, and we may disregard developing a healthy state of mind. However, health and happiness depend primarily upon the quality of our mental state.

Since meditation is the main tool for creating a positive mind, everyone needs meditation for a healthy, happy, and enriching life.
