Buddhist Eye View

Buddhism, for me equates with a healthy lifestyle, and mindset, more so than a religion. I learned at university that it was a psychology – a way of looking at the world, to bring about a state of wellness:

Live up to your spiritual potential! Do not do it for yourself, to become more happy, powerful or likeable, but do it for those who you could be helping right now if you were healed!
~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche

This view equates with the Tibetan Buddhist belief in bodhisattvas – someone whose motivation is compassion, and whose goal of enlightenment is not to save themselves, but compassion for others. Basically love your sisters and brothers, your fellow humans with a deep compassion… rather than selfishly seeking refuge.
