General definition (in Buddhism)Source: Buddhist Door: GlossaryRight thought and intent; avoiding desire and ill will; the second of the Eightfold Path.Source: Shambala Publications: General
Right Thought is associated with seeing how our thoughts and emotions are closely linked, and how indulging in negative forms of thought leads to the development of negative emotions such as hatred and jealousy. Conversely, thinking in a positive way has an effect on our emotions, whereby we start to become more loving, more caring, and more sensitive to others.
