I understand the meaning

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence. ~Hal Borland

    I understand the meaning….Love.

    No Deal, to walk away, to agree.
    One word-"please."
    Two words-"thank you."
    Three words—"I love you."
    Four words-"May l be by you."
    Five words-"How may I help."

    "Alone with myself
    The tree bend to caress me
    The shade hugs my heart"

    " N. appreciate your love in me."
    Thank you for
    Loving me.

    "'And why you have to love me"

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.

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.
