True freedom is a mind at peace.

 

 

The problem.

poor mental health.

Generally speaking, there are two types of suffering: physical and mental. At Nibbuti, we believe that mental suffering is the more devastating. It prevents individuals and entire segments of society from living peacefully and happily. In children, it can lead to poor mental and social development, as well as chronic absence, low achievement, disruptive behavior, and high dropout rates in schools. Prolonged mental suffering into adulthood contributes to current and intergenerational poverty, crime, violence, substance abuse, suicide, and radicalization.

 

The solution.

Moral discipline. concentration. Wisdom.

Just as a fitness regime helps strengthen the body, Buddhist education helps strengthen the mind. The Buddha’s teachings and techniques are universal, enhancing one's quality of life through deliberate development of moral discipline, concentration and wisdom. Think of it as a set of mobile tools for everyday life.

 

 

The findings.

Ancient practice. Modern application.

Through technologies like neuroimaging, scientists from Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins, among others, are proving how Buddhist disciplines regulate emotions, develop awareness and compassion, and promote mental and physical health.
