Buddhist counseling is a process of reducing suffering in individuals using wisdom and interventions from Buddhism, which aims to train the human mind to attain a state of equanimity, joy, and liberation. In the last 2,500 years, Buddhism has been a choice of healing method for millions of individuals but little is known about the components of Buddhist counseling from a psychological perspective. In response to the calling for Buddhist knowledge from mental health professionals and the increase in clinical and research endeavors to consider religiosity and spirituality in psychotherapy, this book aims to demystify the process of traditional Buddhist counseling and present Buddhism in psychological terms in order to enhance cultural awareness of this fourth largest religion in the world and provide considerations and recommendations for professionals who are interested in applying Buddhist ideas and practices in treatment.
