A very poor man in my country, Cambodia, performs opera to sell ice-cream

Such a heart-breaking song with a very heart-touching voice… Though he's poor, he is an honest man. He does not hurt or harm anyone to survive, but struggles to make an honest living to support his large family, through his gifted vocal on his old bike… ~Jendhamuni

    But in lack of proper vision and care of governments such skills can not develop and promote their profession or small business into a stable source of income for lifetime. Have a good day Jendhamuni Sos.

    It's always the ones who lives in modern countries that doesn't understand the values of human morals. Money can't buy true love from friends and family. I guarantee it'll buy you lots of backstabbing friends though.

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.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years.
