The 3 components of the Buddhist Solution

The 3 components of the Buddhist Solution

Buddhism is a philosophy and practice for seeing the world accurately. To notice the true nature of reality:

  1. Non-Self: Your consciousness is not a CEO in your brain, but more like the PR department. There is no atemporal you that is in control. The self is an illusion. 
  2. You can end suffering (dukka) by avoiding tahna – craving for the pleasant + avoidance of pain + tendency for delusion.
  3. Impermanence: Nothing lasts forever! Therefore nothing can be grasped or held onto.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
