"Nowadays, some people are put off by just hearing the word religion, but Buddhism is not so much a religion as a way of life. Buddhism is timeless, very progressive, and fits the ideas of this 21st century perfectly. When searching for spiritual values, many people look for something very fresh and new, and think that Buddhism is too old. But that is not true! Buddhism is the freshest thing you'll ever come across, because our mind is constantly fresh, and the Buddha is talking about nothing other than our state of mind. He teaches that everything, whatever we experience, good or bad, happy or sad, all happens through states of mind."Lama Yeshe Losal.
