Racked, October 10, 2014

Angelina and the entire Jolie-Pitt clan ventured over to Buckingham Palace as the actress was being honored by Queen Elizabeth II. Angelina received her Honorary Dame Grand Cross award in the Palace’s 1844 room, while wearing the most appropriate lilac jacket and skirt, worn with a classy up-do. It matches the Queen’s outfit in length and general pastel-ness almost perfectly. She receives this award for her work combatting sexual violence in devastated regions, and plans on continuing her efforts:

To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.

If this means Angelina Jolie and Kate Middleton are going to meet up to chat about raising babies soon, the internet might actually break.

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.
