I am new here, and new to buddhism also. I have been ill recently, depression anxiety etc. I do beleive that much of my illness has been due to delusions. I endevour to eliminate these delusions, not only so that I can be a healthier, happier man, but so that I can be of more use to other people.

My knowlege of Buddhism is limited, and so I am here to learn.

At the moment I have one question concerning attachment. Although I can see that attachment can lead to suffering and non virtuous actions, how can I avoid attachment with other people? In a sense, should I apply equal attachment to all people, without favourites? If so, how do I acheive this?


All suffering comes from the wish may I be happy
All happiness comes from the wish may others be happy. Like this a great master Shantideva spoke.

Attachment is suffering
Love is expand that...

May you be safe from inner and outer harm.
May you be free from guilt, shame and hatred.
May you enjoy physical and mental wellbeing.
May you live with the ease of an open heart.
May you be awaken to your true nature which is an inexhaustible source of love, compassion and wisdom. _/\_ Anam Thubten Rinpoche.
