YESHE Lama   Becoming Your Own Therapist An Introduction to the Buddhist Way of Thought
FN $10 A/A internationally, Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive 2002 soft cover 63pp. "These days, people study and train to become psychologists. Lord Buddha's idea is that everybody should become a psychologist. Each of you should know your own mind; you should become your own psychologist. This is definitely possible; every human being has the ability to understand his or her own mind. When you understand your own mind, control follows naturally. "Don't think that control is just some Himalayan trip or that it must be easier for people who don't have many possessions. That's not necessarily true. Next time you are emotionally upset, check for yourself. Instead of busily doing something to distract yourself, relax and try to become aware of what you're doing. Ask yourself, 'Why am I doing this? How am I doing it? What's the cause?' You will find this to be a wonderful experience. Your main problem is a lack of intensive knowledge-wisdom, awareness, or consciousness, therefore, you will discovet that through understanding, you can easily solve your problems."
