A Mother is God in a child's eyes

She is the wind that lifts me up to the sky. 
The very breath that I take each day. 
The morning sun shining down on me. 
The moonlight guiding me through the night. 
My northern star, brightly shining in the darkest of days. 
The warmth of her voice echoes in my head. 
The feeling of her kiss, brings tears to my eyes. 
Her smile, making each rainy day, a little bit brighter. 
Living life as though nothing can hurt her. 
A mother is god in a child's eyes. 
She's my god. 
My everything. 
My World. 
The reason why I push on every day of my life. 
Pressing myself to be better. 
Living my day as each is my last. 
Just as she does. 
She's the life that is mine. 
The rhythm of my heartbeat. 
The core of my soul. 
She is the one who wipes the tears away. 
She is the one who can cry and still stay strong. 
She is the one who takes all of my worries away. 
And enlightens my day. 
She is unlike No other. 
She is my one, my only. 
My Beautiful Mother.

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.
