A Hopeful Dream

A life I think is full of hope,
Is turned in to something to just help me cope,
With all the lies and stares,
All I can do is just try not to care,
But deep inside I feel it over flowing,
All the anger, tears, and sorrow,
Trying to keep it to myself,
Is harder then any thing else,
But if i let it go,
I will hurt way more then you know,
So I’ll keep it to myself,
Put my head down and take it all,
Cause one day I will look up,
You know what I’ll see,
A better Life,
One with no anger, tears, or Sorrow,
One with a hopeful Tomorrow,
When that happens I’ll hold my head up,
I’ll know that nothing will hold me down,
So until that day comes,
I’ll keep going,
Keep moving on,
Until that wonderful day comes along!

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.
