Buddhism as Psychology and Psychoyherapy

We hereby present our whitepaper ‘Buddhism as Psychology and Psychoyherapy’.  This white paper is a manifesto explaining in the shortest possible way why Buddhism can be viewed as a psychology. Not only the Dhamma is replete of terms denoting mind or psyche throughout the written texts, the Nikayas (the Buddha’s for about 17000 discourses) and the Abhidhamma (abstracted teachings considered as canonical), but foremost the first and second discourses of the Buddha can be explained as reflecting a psychological approach to end emotional suffering, the raison d’être why the Buddha started teaching his Dhamma in the first place to help humanity forward some 2600 years ago (Dhamma literally means memorables, worth to be remembered and disseminated in order for humanity to live a wholesome life).
