1. Love and Peace

    Comment

    Love is not a doctrine. Peace is not an international agreement.
    Love and Peace are beings who live as possibilities in us.

    ~Mary Caroline Richards

  2. Our imaginations

    Comment

    In our imaginations we believe that love is apart from us.
    Actually there is nothing but love, once we are ready
    to accept it. When you truly find love, you find yourself.

    ~Deepak Chopra

  3. Live one day at a time

    Comment

    Living a positive life gives you better quality to your life Life is short! Reach out and grab it while you have it! Embrace all those little daily things! Take time to smell the roses Don’t rush through life. Live one day at a time. Stop worrying so much, it gets you no where. Accept what will be! Let go of all those things that weigh you down! Live, Love & Laugh. ~Suzie Pierce

  4. Half of our lives

    Comment

    We spend the first half of our lives trying to grow up
    and the other half trying to figure out how we got so old!
    ~Nishan Panwar

  5. Love being accompanied by wisdom

    Comment

    Love is never the poorer for being accompanied by wisdom. It is not harmed by being deprived of a crown. The agonies we endure and inflict in the name of love come from making love bear too heavy a weight. While we are in the world and engaged in the life of a householder we will naturally form attachments to family, job, friends, and lovers, but the suffering produced from these attachments will vary according to our wisdom and maturity. If we see nothing higher at all and abandon ourselves to the lottery of gaining and losing, we will surely suffer great pain, but if we keep the ideals of the Dhamma before us we will gain a measure of insulation against worldly inclemencies.

    This video represents the life cycle of a chicken in a fun way. It shows the hatching of an egg in the incubator in real time. A person can see the chick while it’s forcing its self out of the egg.

  7. Dreaming of you

    Comment

    Dreaming of you makes my night worthwhile,
    Thinking of you makes me smile,
    Being your friend is the best thing ever,
    And loving you is what I’ll do forever…

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.
