  1. Sometimes, to choose their path, a person studies one philosophy, another, goes to one organization or another. He tries a lot of different things. Meditation without philosophy is worthless. Harmony means clearly answering your questions: Who am I? Where am I? why me?
    Philosophy answers these questions, and meditation serves to realize these answers very deeply and accept them wholeheartedly, to make them your life.�
    Try to learn the basics, and meditate to see if it resonates in your heart.�
    But there are some peculiarities in the philosophy of Buddhism that I personally find very illogical. This is my personal opinion, but in short,:

    • the goal of practicing Buddhism is a state of non-existence (nirvana) no desire, no suffering, etc.

    • according to Buddhism, this world is an illusion and it is not clear when and how it appeared

    • Buddhism denies the existence of the individual, the eternal self, but says that everyone can become a Buddha
    • Buddhism denies the existence of God, but despite this it is recognized as a world religion
    • modern Buddhists deified the Buddha, but he denied his divinity
      I found the answers in a different philosophy, but before that I was interested in Buddhism ,Taoism, and so on.
  2. It is definitely not necessary to join the culture. But in Tibetan Buddhism, there is a fairly well-developed and proven system for achieving harmony, self-knowledge, etc.�
    There are also simple meditation practices (mindfulness, vipassana, mindfulness based stress reduction, etc.). If you want to do without philosophy, but just learn basic practices for calming down, reducing stress, etc., you can start with them.�

    It also depends on what is meant by harmony with yourself and in general what are the problems in life.
