Expectation

In life, don't expect anything from anyone.
Because expectation, when not fulfilled, gives you pain.
When you get something without expecting it,
it gives you pleasure. Keep doing your part
And leave the rest to God. ~sms4smile

    The most valuable thing we have is our human life which is a precious gift from god and teaches us that our every need, every moment, every contact and all the relationships are pre engineered for us and we have only to carry on the job given to us ( karma ) and to follow the rules ( dharma ). Have a nice day +Jendhamuni Sos​.

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.

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.
