Keep being YOU

When other people treat you poorly, walk away, smile and keep being YOU. Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are. One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and that’s OK. ~Cris Nikolov

    Nothing can change the basic quality of a person and brightness of such quality increases with the maturity which comes through facing hard struggles and bitter experiences. Good morning +Jendhamuni Sos.

    When you meet the ignorant , keep away from them. Be with musk & jasmin. Not with evilish people. They harm themselves and spoil others. Careful…..path of life is with full of flowers and nails…some are good . Most of them are poisonous.

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.
