1. May your weekend be peaceful and beautiful

    128

    Me with my mom and dad at the hospital on November 22
    I'm still very busy with the memorial and the upcoming funeral services for my dad. Thank you very much for your kindness and for being here for me always. I will keep this in my heart till my last breath. I am doing very fine, but my mother and my siblings suffer tremendously. We love our mom and dad more than anything in this world. I still don't have time to visit any of you yet. Please give me some time. I will show you the picture of my mom and dad one day. The first day of my dad's memorial service will be on his birthday, January 3rd, 2015, coincidentally. We will bury him next to our little sister Alanthara, who passed a way on November 3rd, last year, on January 5th, 2015. My dad purchased a plot for himself next to our little sister several months ago. I will do everything I could possibly do till my last breath, to let my dad know how much I love him, no matter where he is. ~Jendhamuni

  2. My Father just passed a way

    515

    My father just left us about an hour ago, peacefully. He's very tired. He knew he would not make it since last Saturday. My father has been a very hard working man, a man with great patience, a man who does not like to speak more than a few words each day. A man who never failed to take care of his family and children, just like my grandma, his Mother. Nothing is permanent. This happened because of that. That couldn't happen without this. Things happened for a reason, according to time and condition. At the end, all we can take with us is the good and the bad deed. Thank you so much for your spiritual support, your kind and caring words, your prayers and your presence. Yes, I will miss my wonderful father tremendously, but he will be forever in my heart. One day, I will meet him again… Please do not worry. Please do not cry. Everything will be okay… ~Jendhamuni

  3. An update on my father's condition

    240

    My father is in critical condition right now. He may lose his life at any time, unless there is a miracle… He's having a surgery again, right now. This is his last chance. He got better yesterday, but back in critical condition earlier. This second brain surgery is our only choice. Otherwise he would had left us during the last couple hours already. I am doing fine. Please do not worry. Everything will be okay… Make sure you smile. ~Jendhamuni

  4. For all my dearest friends, brothers and sisters

    107

    I will visit you as soon as I have a chance
    Thank you so much for always thinking of me and always keeping my father and my family in your prayers. My dad finally opens his eyes. He cannot talk yet, but he can move and can hear us very well. Hopefully he will talk soon. I asked him if he wants to go back home with us, and he nodded. We are waiting patiently to hear his voice again… Again, thank you so much. Please don't be sad, everything will be okay. Things happened for a reason… Keep smiling. ~Jendhamuni

  5. Miss you aways

    230

    My mother and I are doing fine. My dad has been in coma since yesterday. He's in critical condition, fighting for his life right now. He was suppose to pass away yesterday because of the major stroke in his brain, but doctors have performed a life-saving procedure to save him. We have been waiting for him to open his eyes. My dad is a very tough man. Hopefully, he will survive this most dangerous stage. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I did not want to inform you about this sad news, because I don't want any of my friends to worry. I want to see you smile, rather. So please do not worry – everything will be okay. That is the reason I don't have time to visit any of you. Do not forget to smile… ~Jendhamuni

  6. Beauty of the Heart

    37

    "The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart." ~Rumi
    Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world. ~Lao Tzu

Of the many problems we face today

jendhamuni pink scarfnature

Of the many problems we face today, some are natural calamities and must be accepted and faced with equanimity. Others, however, are of our own making, created by misunderstanding, and can be corrected. One such type arises from the conflict of ideologies, political or religious, when people fight each other for petty ends, losing sight of the basic humanity that binds us all together as a single human family. We must remember that the different religions, ideologies, and political systems of the world are meant for human beings to achieve happiness. We must not lose sight of this fundamental goal and at no time should we place means above ends; the supremacy of humanity over matter and ideology must always be maintained. ~Daila Lama

Lotus Flower

What makes the lotus flower so special?

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet. The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism.
Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

"My religion is very simple.
My religion is kindness"

"The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, forgiveness." ~ Dalai Lama

Because it’s who you are

Because it's who you are

You don't do kind deeds expecting kindness in return. You don't do kind deeds because you deem the recipient worthy. You do kind deeds because it's who you are, and because you understand the powerful difference your gentle hand makes in this dreary world. ~Richelle E. Goodrich
