    10 October 2013- The Kingdom of Cambodia continues to be an example in the fight against death penalty and can be legitimately proud of the way it has drawn the lessons from the past and became a respected regional abolitionist, both by law and by conviction. At the occasion of the 11th World Day against the Death Penalty, the Delegation of the European Union in Cambodia and the Cambodia Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights commend the strong commitment of Cambodia to the abolition of the death penalty, and encourage the Kingdom to further lead the way on this issue, both domestically and at ASEAN level.

  3. Just understanding


    No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you
    understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change. ~Thich Nhat Hạnh
  4. The Earth is so Beautiful


    The earth is so beautiful. We are beautiful also. We can allow ourselves to walk mindfully, touching the earth, our wonderful mother, with each step. We don't need to wish our friends, 'Peace be with you.' Peace is already with them. We only need to help them cultivate the habit of touching peace in each moment. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

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.

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.
