A mind free from inner turmoil is the source of happiness. But how do we free our mind from inner unrest—from the forces of raga (attachment) and dvesha (aversion) and the desire and anger accompanying them, which wreak havoc on our minds and bodies? Pandit Tigunait explains how cultivating an awakened buddhi (faculty of discernment) and practicing self-examination can prevent these disruptive forces from gathering momentum, and how focusing on gratitude and good fortune in the midst of life’s ever-changing circumstances allows us to remain free from inner turmoil.
