Buddha taught that the mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects. Normally we say, “I created such and such,” or “He/she/they created such and such.” But the actual creator of everything is the mind — because everything is a mere imputation by mind.
“Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so their main causes cannot be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
