Someone stole one of my Lotus plants already

The lady only sold us two lotus plants, after begging her to sell them to us for many days, maybe months! Now, one has been stolen already, especially the large and beautiful and healthy one. I have been waiting for the flower to appear right before my eyes, as pink as the shirt I am wearing, as a surprise to make my smile more beautiful and meaningful. Well, I love pink and pink lotus so much, that’s why I wear pink almost every day. And I wear yellow too, of course, not just pink! Well, my plant is so beautiful. Cannot blame the person who stole it, or took it without our permission. Who does not love that super gorgeous green plant! I would cry if, and only if I know how to cry. The problem is, I was born to smile, and I only know how to smile!

Well, whoever took my lotus plant, please take good care of it. You must keep your eyes on this gorgeous plant wide open, in case someone else would sneak in to take that a way, same way you did to Jendhamuni.

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.
