The Buddha taught in India over 2,500 years ago. He emphasized that the key to happiness and meaning was in people's own minds - in the thoughts, stories, interpretations, and commentaries that ticked round their minds moment by moment. He gave people practical ways to have more awareness and to choose more helpful thoughts and interpretations.
