BetterLife and Buddha

Although Loyfa BetterLife is not strictly a buddhist focused program, it is grounded in the basic principles of what the Buddha taught over 2,500 years ago about life’s sufferings and how to end those sufferings.

Removing the religious elements, we’ve swayed focus to “The Four Noble Truths” and “The Eight Fold Path.”- “The Four Noble Truths” state that life is suffering, but that there is a way to end suffering. The Buddha prescribes the “Eight Fold Path” as the guideline to bring you closer to ending your suffering.

The Eight Fold Path” -

  • Right understanding
  • Right Intent
  • RIght Speech
  • Right Action
  • Right Livelihood (Career)
  • RIght Effort
  • Right Mindfulness
  • Right Concentration (Practice)
