Cambodia court summoned Ven. Saccamuni Luon Sovath 

Our most courageous human rights activist, land activist and environmental activist in Cambodia, during this generation, has been summoned to attend a so-called criminal court hearing on September 18, 2014 at 8 AM in Phnom Penh, Cambodia [for being too compassionate; too kind and caring for the poor and land victims]. These are the three-page court document issued to Ven. Luon Savath. Hope many Khmers in Cambodia are willing to show up at the court on September 18, to witness this injustice action by the Cambodia government. We must work together to put an end to this dictatorship in our country. Our brothers and sisters in Cambodia has suffered long enough because of this dictator, this traitor who has no heart, no compassion for our people. Venerable Luon Sovath can be reached via phone at this number: 012 83 83 22. ~Jendhamuni

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.
