1. For all the Dreamers

    355

    I sleep in the clouds, dream in the sky,
    I’ll keep dreaming as life passes me by,
    I think my dreams keep me sane,
    I dream of happiness, a life without pain,
    some people say I’m stuck in this place,
    and I’ll never go anywhere,
    but in my dreams I’ve already been there,
    I know some day I’ll have to wake up,
    but I feel the real world is more like a nightmare,
    I’m safe in my closed eye wonderland,
    this poem goes to all the dreamers that understand,
    no matter what they say…
    keep your dreams but don’t dream your life away.

  2. All Dreamers Understand

    Comment

    Note: This poem has nothing to do with Jendhamuni’s life

    Our love was a romantic book
    from the sacred day we met,
    your gentle charm enthralled me
    from then-on the scene was set:
    A sunny day, a rainy day,
    it mattered not to me,
    if I could see your happy face
    and walk and talk with thee.

    When snow was falling from the sky
    and chilly breezes blew,
    were it not for your embrace
    I’d pine the whole day through.
    So now we are alone my love
    I offer you my hand,
    to join with yours in wedlock
    as all “dreamers” understand.

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.
