1. Just returned home from a funeral service


    I just got back home from a funeral service of a 95-year-old lady…
    The weather is awful right now. Very few cars on the road, kind of scary…

    Hurricane Sandy will be here at any time. If you don’t hear from me,
    you know why.

    The Governor has already declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts as Hurricane Sandy approached New England, threatening heavy rains and damaging winds that could bring massive power outages.


  2. Please think before believing in Nonsense


    Nonsense is so good only because common sense is so limited.
    ~George Santayana

    Many Cambodian said they saw a face of the former Khmer King (Norodom Sihanouk) who just passed a way on the 15 of October 2012, on the moon several days ago. Rumors are spreading like fire. #wp

  3. I am home again


    I just got back. Still have so many things to get done. I will visit all of you tomorrow. Missed you so much my dearest friends. 

    A very sad day for us: A 95-year-old elderly we just visited at the nursing home, passed a way last night…At 95, she still had an amazing memory. She was able to communicate with us so well on the day we visited her. So sad that she had to leave us. Nothing is permanent…

  4. Please do not let anything or anyone ruin your smile


    I am taking one week off from my regular job to do charity work with Buddhist Monks and Buddhist Nuns for one whole week. I will return home Tuesday night. I will have a little access to g+ via my phone, but the connection is very slow. I can read streams, and  a few plus+ing, but comment may not be possible. Too slow.  G+ friends is just like my second family. I respect and cherish our friendship here very much. Take care my dear friends. I will miss all of you and the beautiful posts you share very much. Everyone is my teacher. I have learned so much from each and everyone of you. See you again Tuesday night, next week.

  7. October +Mav T 


    October +Mav T 

    October’s the month
    When the smallest breeze
    Gives us a shower
    Of autumn leaves.
    Bonfires and pumpkins,
    Leaves sailing down –
    October is red
    And golden and brown.

    Leaving my little room now. Going out of states again.
    See you all Sunday night. No holiday for me this coming Monday.

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.

A Handful of Leaves

A Handful of Leaves

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.

5. Be detached from desire your whole life long.
6. Do not regret what you have done.
7. Never be jealous.
8. Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.
9. Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself nor... read more
