Not that way

Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way – everything is interdependent, not absolute. So that view is very helpful to maintain a peace of mind because the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger. ~Dalai Lama

    Is it the remidy of anger when we leave the place temporarily when we are forcibly pushed in a situation of "do or die" unjustifiably. Good morning +Jendhamuni Sos​.

    I get angry when innocent people get unfairly treated…. So there is still the need for innocent people to be treated with respect.

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.

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.
