There’s proof that mindfulness is good for us! Have a read:
Researchers at the Hong Kong’s Center for Buddhist Studies have published findings that point to a connection between the heart and the mind.
“Activities of the brain and heart became more coordinated during MBSR training,” reported the authors. “Mindfulness training may increase the entrainment between mind and body.”

An excellent discussion of The Buddha, and Budhisism in general. ❤
What is a Buddha, and what do we really know about the Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha who really lived 2,600 years ago?

I have a Kwan Yin statue identical to this one. A great article. ❤
Kwan Yin is the protector of women, children, sailors, fishermen, anyone in trouble, and the sick, disabled, and poor. Some Buddhist schools present her as male and female interchangeably.
One of Buddhism’s most beloved bodhisattvas, and the embodiment of compassion, Kwan Yin is known as “she who hears the cries of the world.”
