1. Live Life Happy


    There are certain people who no longer belong in your life no matter how much you want them to. You know who they are. Let them go. ~Unknown

  2. Don’t wait until tomorrow


    I am only one, but still I am one.
    I cannot do everything,
    but still I can do something;
    and because I cannot do everything,
    I will not refuse to do something I can do.

    ~ Edward Everett Hale


  3. Be Like a Glorious Lotus Flower


    The Sacred Lotus flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, it reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever. The Sacred Lotus flower is regarded in many different cultures, especially in eastern religions, as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters, the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower.

  4. Share your Dreams


    In most cases, negative comments from others are their own fears or insecurity being projected onto you. If you allow them to, these doubts will seep in and throw you off your path. It is important to have positivity around you during this time. Only share your dream with people that you know will support your endeavors. ~Allison Maslan

  5. Putting negative feelings aside


    Let negative thinking, habits, relationships,
    conversations, and plans die now.
    Don’t carry them into your future.

    ~Thema Davis

  6. Good Night!


    Peaceful dream, if there is any,
    otherwise don't dream at all.
    A sleep without a dream is better,
    Your mind will get to rest peacefully,
    just like the beautiful body, resting at night.

    PS: I caught up with many projects this week,
    so I will have extra time to visit you tomorrow.

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.
