    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;ABSTRACT: New Thought teachings are based on a variety of pre-existing traditions as well as&amp;nbsp;on information new to the human consciousness. While the exact source of specific New Thought&amp;nbsp;concepts is unclear, evidence suggests that the movement benefited from eastern religious traditions&amp;nbsp;including Buddhism. New Thought metaphysical principles including the Law of Attraction,&amp;nbsp;the practice of meditation, and the Law of Cause and Effect can be found in the Buddhist text, the&amp;nbsp;Dhammapada. These principles are described in detail throughout the Dhammapada, providing&amp;nbsp;strong evidence that early New Thought thinkers were influenced by the contents of the&amp;nbsp;Dhammapada and Buddhist practices.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
