Smiling from inside

Happiness comes more easily when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval. ~Cris Nikolov
Be back to visit some of you within 3 hours. Heavy rain and very very cold today. Been waiting for the rain to stop so I could return home. My clothes and my hair are all wet. I could not smile in this photo because it's freezing! Finally, I am home…Going to meditate for couple hours. See you after the meditation.

    Hi Jen,
    Lovely -:) -:) -:)
    If you want happines for an hour – take a nap.
    If you want happiness for a day – go fishing.
    If you want happiness for a year – inherit a fortune.
    If you want happiness for a life time – help someone else.
    Have a good day my sweet sister. Keep similing.

    Sometimes another's approval is actually unwanted, but only because they are bullies, so avoid bullies….

    Jendhamuni …you are the central point now. People are rotating arround your beautiful illustration of feelings and passions. But we all are the Slaves of our Great Lord…worship Him..Return to Him ..the earth including with us rotating arround the sun for a fixed time till the last hour establishes…that is the time the world reaches to singularity..a stop…where no protection…but the faith and your commitment to Lord…so let us surrender ours to our Great Creator, where you find happiness and protection. think about big bang theory.worry less.Thank you

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.

7. Never be jealous.
8. Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.
