Pain, loss and traumatic events are part of the human experience, yet most of us don’t talk about that part of our lives. According to a Health Care Policy report from Harvard Medical School, approximately 60% Americans experience at least one traumatic event in their lifetime.Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event.Some of these individuals may go on to develop PTSD, a condition marked by intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to a traumatic experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. A recent study of the research finds that Mindfulness may provide relief from post-traumatic symptoms such as anxiety, sleep disturbance, and difficulty concentrating.
The Diamond Sutra (Sanskrit: Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra) is one of the most important sutras in Buddhist philosophy and is highly valued in both traditional Chinese and Japanese societies. Originally written in Sanskrit, it has been translated into many languages, including Mandarin and English.
In the practice of mindfulness, the first thing to do is to empty the mind and get rid of all troubles, and only then we can develop the unsurpassed bodhicitta of perfect enlightenment. This mind is not attached to form, nor to sound, smell, taste, touch, or dharma. It should not be attached everywhere, and only our mindful heart can be perfect and unobstructed. If you don’t have attachments on any case, you will be able to liberate the mind of dwelling, which is the dwelling place of the Bodhisattva.
