Can I just ask, in what way is this linked to buddhism? Sorry if I’m too dull to see it this morning. :upside_down_face:

It’s related to Buddhism to extent it talks about a mental health condition all human beings, including Buddhists , are at risk to.

Also, the way it talks about care, love and kindness for oneself as a possible and powerful solution to the issue, is pretty much aligned with what we see in EBTs such as SN3.8

It is not a controversy-free diagnosis; it may not be observably or scientifically supportable, but IS of interest in psychiatric commerce, i.e. what insurance will pay for. I suggest caution in embracing this.
