Despite 7 arrests, Missouri governor sees 'solid step forward' in Ferguson
Holder orders Justice Department to perform additional autopsy on Brown
Despite another night of violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, where seven people were arrested and one person was critically wounded after a curfew was imposed from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m., Gov. Jay Nixon said "a solid step forward" was made on Sunday.

"I'm really proud of everybody's effort last night, especially from the community," Nixon said on ABC's "This Week." "With thousands of people out there, you know, only seven arrests, the majority of those from outside the area, not a single shot by a police officer. I thought that last night, with the help of the community, a solid step forward was made." By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo News, August 17, 2014

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.
