Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only from within our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourself and others truly happy. Buddha taught a sequence of meditation that show us a step by step path to this lasting inner peace and freedom.”
