According to Buddhist philosophy, compulsive and addictive behavior is common to all “normal” individuals. Shinzen Young is a Buddhist monk and director of the Community Meditation Center of Los Angeles. He is author of The Science of Enlightenment: How Meditation Works and other titles. Through meditation, says Young, one learns to recognize the root cause of addiction as a lack of mindfulness. Gradually, through increased awareness, the compulsive impulse looses its grip on the individual.
