Do not expect too much

Stopping by, reminding you to smile. So tired… Still have several more tasks to complete. As soon as I'm done, I will come by to visit some of you. Miss all of you very much… Practice detaching yourself from things that are difficult to let go. Nothing is permanent. Do not expect too much. Craving and clinging will make you suffer, angry, lonely and sad. The more you let go, the more you will experience peace. ~Jendhamuni

    Bonsoir .
    Tu es jeune cherie .
    Si tu savais l'horreur que je sais…
    J'aurais voulu que tu ne le saches jamais .
    Pour le bonheur ! Pour etre heureuse sur cette terre !
    Je me sens si coupable d'avoir mis des enfants au monde .
    Mes petites cheries que l'on a reduites en esclavage .

My Reflection

My Reflection

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.

A Handful of Leaves

A Handful of Leaves

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.

Just the way it is

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
2. Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.
4. Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.
5. Be detached from desire your whole life long.
