How do we control and eliminate these emotional afflictions? Buddhism provides many ways to do so, one of which is the Buddhist view. There are Buddhist views which go beyond the understanding of ordinary beings, but the general view can be divided into three categories: the value of our world, life and morality. Without an understanding of the essential relationship between individuals, money or marriage, we will suffer from pain and negative emotions. If an objective, just and scientific view toward this world and life can be established, our worries will be reduced and our life will be more meaningful.
