Hello everyone,

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 joy....to expand that...
