1. When you love without measure

    22

    When you truly care for someone, you don't look for faults. You don't look for mistakes. You accept the faults, and you overlook excuses. The measure of love is when you love without measure.

    Every relationship requires equal efforts by both parties,equal right to be loved and cared for, equal responsibility to love and care for. ~Unknown author

  3. Never mistake

    29

    Never mistake having great physical characteristics for being a truly attractive person. It is only those who are willing to be real with their selves and real with others at all times that are actually wildly attractive. It is those who have not a care in the world for how society tells them to dress, and how society tells them to talk and walk, that makes them wildly attractive.

    It is those who make attempts to change the world in a direction more towards world peace, and who are more concerned with seeing the world become a better place than they are with allowing the world to see them with make-up on or the freshest outfit on at the mall. You have a choice, you can either work hard at being yourself and being wildly attractive, or you can aim to please everyone around you. ~ by J. Johnson

  4. Think about it

    37

    Sometimes the hardest thing to do is smile. We all have rough days, and we all go through experiences in life that we honestly wish we didn't have to. But it is only when we are able to take a second, and smile about the blessings we have in life that we realize how important it is to just smile.

    We have all heard many times how fortunate we are as people compared to others. Think about it. Right now you have access to the Internet that millions of unfortunate souls don't have. Think of how much of a blessing that being able to acquire information from such a rich resource is, and how much just this one thing helps to impact your life.

    Never get so caught up in life's stresses that you forget about what is really important. Smile, laugh, love, cry, be you, give to others, and promote peace! ~by J. Johnson

  5. Dwelling Happily in the Present Moment

    66

    Aware that life is available only in the present moment, we are committed to training ourselves to live deeply each moment of daily life. We will try not to lose ourselves in dispersion or be carried away by regrets about the past, worries about the future, or cravings, anger, or jealousy in the present. We will practice mindful breathing to be aware of what is happening in the here and now. We are determined to learn the art of mindful living by touching the wondrous, refreshing, and healing elements that are inside and around us, in all situations. In this way, we will be able to cultivate seeds of joy, peace, love, and understanding in ourselves, thus facilitating the work of transformation and healing in our consciousness. We are aware that happiness depends primarily on our mental attitude and not on external conditions, and that we can live happily in the present moment simply by remembering that we already have more than enough conditions to be happy. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

  6. Moment to moment

    35

    A person who lives moment to moment, who goes on dying to the past, is never attached to anything. Attachment comes from the accumulated past. If you can be unattached to the past every moment, then you are always fresh, young, just born. You pulsate with life and that pulsation gives you immortality. You are immortal, only unaware of the fact. ~Osho

  7. We have to embrace

    44

    When you say something unkind, when you
    do something in retaliation, your anger increases.
    You make the other person suffer, and they try hard
    to say or do something back to make you suffer,
    and get relief from their suffering. That is
    how conflict escalates.

    Just like our organs, our anger is part of us.
    When we are angry, we have to go back to ourselves
    and take good care of our anger. We cannot say,
    ‘Go away, anger, I don’t want you.’ When you have
    a stomachache, you don’t say, ‘I don’t want you
    stomach, go away.’ No, you take care of it.
    In the same way, we have to embrace and
    take good care of our anger.

    ~Thich Nhat Hanh

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
