How to Cultivate Peace of Mind

There is no guarantee of security in this world because material conditions and our worldly possessions are unreliable. Therefore, Buddhism teaches us to cultivate peace of mind, for as long as we can calm and stabilize our own mind, our environment will not matter. Peace of mind doesn't lie in any outside person, situation or thing for protection. Instead, we should face reality and maintain a balanced body and mind. As long as we do our part then our mind will be at ease and at peace.
