The Buddhist Attitude Towards Life
These days, everything is speeding up, causing more and more people to undergo tremendous stress. In this regard, Tibetan Buddhism can not only provide spiritual support, but it also can provide an efficient way to solve the sorts of problems that many modern people are dealing with.
We know that many people like the fast food culture because they are so busy working during the daytime. It seems that in Germany people have more leisure time, but in Mainland China, this is not the case; every day people work up to 10 or more hours. They become very exhausted and then all kinds of confusions arise deep in their hearts. Being tired day after day, they gradually end up suffering from depression or becoming anti-social. This phenomenon is quite common.
Given this situation, Tibetan Buddhism provides them with an approach to solving their problems quickly and facing up to their sufferings more easily. Some become regular visitors to our Buddhist Academy, and from that experience they have cultivated a new attitude towards life. They recognize that in addition to the need for money, they also need to pursue spiritual happiness, and, in the end, that inner support is ultimately more valuable to them. In fact, many people have been able to quickly find inner happiness by following our Buddhist teachings. I believe this is exactly how Buddhism can be of benefit in a modern society.
