1. A Beautiful Day

    A Beautiful Day
    There’s not a cloud today
    Just a sky of blue
    As the sun shines bright
    It feels so new

    As you walk down the street
    You can see smiles from all around
    It looks like everyone
    Came to town

    To enjoy the Summer’s day
    And let time stand still
    For a little while
    Just enjoy.

  2. A Beautiful Day

    289

    Wishing you a beautiful day, my friend
    With lots of happiness without end
    And even though we are far apart
    You are a friend that warms my heart.

    A beautiful day brings butterflies
    Birds and flowers as a gift
    They enrich our lives like friends,
    That give to us a special lift.

    So I am wishing you a beautiful day
    Oh yes, one more thing I want to say
    May God send many blessings your way
    And may you always walk in joy, I pray.

  3. Another beautiful day

    Comment

    I’m thankful for waking up to another beautiful day. If you’re living and breathing, then there’s nothing to be depressed about. I will sleep deeply and wake up full of energy. Life is not lived in the past, neither is it lived wandering in future. Life is for today, and it is today. ~Unknown

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.
