I find the Buddhist theory on Dukkha, Tanha, and Moha fascinating and enriching. Ignorance leading to false viewpoints leading to attachment, which furthermore causes suffering, is logical, and for me, a thought strain that should be taken under consideration. Having lived in Myanmar, where Buddhism is practiced countrywide, I experienced the mindfulness and wisdom of Buddhist monks. However, looking at the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, and the reaction of many Buddhist leaders who justify violence, Buddhist theories also need proper translation and implementation on the ground level. Mindfulness, for me, also means being present in every moment. Observing, understanding, asking the right questions, and preserving a judgment-free attitude are critical elements in mediation processes. Mindfulness can be strengthened through self-reflection. Knowing and understanding one’s background, upbringing, values, socialization, and culture and how it affects the way one thinks, acts, and reacts is highly beneficial. Thinking about myself, my family background, geographical origin, values taught as a child, school friends, family dramas, relationships, crisis, highlights, experiences, and encounters have left a shaped me and my personality and ambitions.
