1. Change

    57

    Many says, I want change
    Want change in my time
    Want change in my life
    I want a change badly
    I want change, many say

    They pray for a change
    They wish for a change
    They look for a change
    But they will not change
    They just wait for change

    It never happens to them
    It will never ever happen
    By mere prayer or wish
    It must start from inside
    With tons of determination

    Change is not so easy
    It takes lots of time
    So it needs determination
    The will to make change
    The will to see change

    Then only things will change
    Then only time will change
    Then only life will change
    So go and get change
    To see the bliss of change

    ~Kranthi Pothineni

  2. Personal responsibility

    Comment

    You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. ~Jim Rohn

  3. In order to change

    If you learn something that changes you, you’ve made progress. If you learn something that changes others, you’ve helped change the world. ~Lanie

  5. Nature of the river

    Comment

    One man watches a river flow by. If he does not wish it to flow, to change ceaselessly in accord with its nature, he will suffer great pain. Another man understands that nature of the river is to change constantly, regardless of his likes and dislikes, and therefore he does not suffer. To know existence as this flow, empty of lasting pleasure, void of self, is to find that which is stable and free of suffering, to find true peace in the world. ~Ajahn Chah

  6. If you need to change

    Comment

    If you need to change, it either means something is missing or something
    is wrong, or it simply means you’ve lost interest. Or that something lost
    its value that needs changing. But change is good, if it’s necessary don’t resist it.

    ~London Mond

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.
