Your words touched me deelpy. I have major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, and major anxiety issues. I understand what it's like to have an illness that you don't have much control over. You sound like you're doing everything right and I commend you for that. Keep it up. Your article reminds me of one that I wrote, Living With Chronic Pain which can be found on my website. This article has been featured on a popular social site that caters to people who suffer from just about everything. It has made a difference in many people's lives and I have been thanked from around the world for putting their misery in words so that people will understand. That's what you're doing, too. I wish you the best and commend you for speaking out.

If someone were to ask me if I am a Buddist, I'd have to say yes. And, with a side note, that once one trleuy becomes a Buddist, they realize that they are trleuy one with everything! To me all religions, all voices and all writings are teachings, expression of the human being working to evolve his/her potential. Buddism has a way of teaching that transcends and includes all other forms of religion. I was born Jewish. And, it wasn't until after studying Buddism that I know have a heart to heart connection with Christ. One of my favorite quotes from Sogyal Rinpoche is: Be a Christian, practice Buddism! Buddism teaches a way of understanding mind and its potential separate from dogma or rituals. Its very easy step by step way. However, the rituals are nice to and help us to see the world from the inside-out, something the English language or any lanugauage has diffficulty doing.Thank you for the essential education link. I pray that all religions will find a path that can universally flow for all.

With all due respect to the previous comment, I find it more accurate to say I am becoming a Buddhist. I cannot say I am a Buddhist because I am still learning to apply the principles to my daily life in this modern world. I am grateful to the monks for their guidance in mediation and Buddha's way.

ALONE ONE DELIGHTS IN SOLITUDE He who sits alone, rests alone, walks alone unindolent, who in solitude controls himself, will find delight in the forest.

Toronto Mahavihara is one of the best places to study and practice Buddhism in North America. Toronto Mahavihara is propagating the sublime doctrine of the Buddha.Buddhism invites anyone to come and see for himself or herself. Human Minds are sources of Buddhahood & Enlightenment. by Sona K. Barua
