Buddhism

“Just as rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, so afflicting passions penetrate a poorly-guarded mind.” Dhammapada, Ch1, Verse 13

The NHS recommends five ways to help improve your mental health and wellbeing. These approaches are all aligned with Buddhist beliefs and teachings.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing & Buddhism has been designed in collaboration with members of London’s Buddhist communities, with the support of The Buddhist Society and in consultation with the Network of Buddhist Organisations.
