Serenity

 

We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?

    That's the way to share our Precious Being between other humans, and not only*_*!*:))

    becose that means to steal our own hat, isn't so?1

    TIADA KEADAAN DAN KEKUATAN YANG BISA DIKETAHUI KECUALI SEIZIN ALLAH. Dengan Indra ke enam dan Ilmu Terawang kita bisa : Allah ahadun dan kun faya kun melalui malaikat tsamaniyah memberikan kepada kita wahyu manam dan wahyu taskhir. Dia menentukan keadaan dan kekuatan seseorang sebagai Takdir Illahi. Manusia dibukakan Rahasia Illahi dengan ilham Fujuraha (taufiqullah) atau secret Tuhan dengan ilham Taqwaha (hidayatullah). Ditelaah dan dijelaskan berdasarkan research, observasi dan experimen yang diridai oleh Allah dan utusan dalam kabar solusiNya kepada manusia dari catatan Lauh Mahfuuzh.

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

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.
6. Do not regret what you have done.
7. Never be jealous.
8. Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.
9. Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself nor... read more
