The New York Times reported today that the Dalai Lama has launched a digital “map of the mind.” His Holiness worked with psychologist Paul Ekman — who advised Pixar on the film Inside Out, in which the main characters are emotions — to create an “Atlas of Emotions,” to help people better understand their own minds.

The atlas breaks emotions into five major groups — as accepted by a large majority of scientists — and then delves into the experiences, shades, and triggers of those emotions.

“‘When we wanted to get to the New World, we needed a map,’” said Dr. Ekman, quoting the Dalai Lama in the Times article. “‘So make a map of emotions so we can get to a calm state.’”
