  2. Help other people and touch their lives meaningfully

    Comment

    The happiest people are those who are contented with what they currently have, not with what they lack. There really is nothing more rewarding in this world than helping other people improve their lives. This activity doesn’t only make you feel great about yourself – it also makes you value what you have in your life. Every little thing counts. You have the ability to make yourself feel to be more grateful in your life – never let anybody tell you different.

  3. Proud to be Khmer

    Comment

    So happy to see Khmer women wearing Khmer costume to the buddhist temple. Not many people are wearing proper close to the temple these days, including the older ones. Feel so bad for the buddhist monks. I was quite shocked to see Khmer women look almost naked at the temples. What happens to our beautiful culture now…Jendhamuni

  4. His Holiness Maha Ghosananda

    Comment

    Wall of Remembrance...Supreme Patriarch of Cambodian Buddhism
    The Gandhi and the Gem of Cambodia
    His whole life for the Khmer Nation, Buddhism and Peace
    (May 23, 1913 – March 12, 2007)

    Our journey for peace
    begins today and every day.
    Each step is a prayer,
    Each step is a meditation,
    Each step will build a bridge.

     

    Samdech Maha Ghosananda became my inspiration since I first met him. The world lost one of the most important figures and a hero when His Holiness, the Supreme Patriarch of Cambodian Buddhism passed away. Although Samdech Maha Ghosananda has already departed from this earth, I will continue to keep the flame burning and remember him forever. I would like to pay His Holiness my gratitude by dedicating this Wall of Remembrance to honor him till the day I die…Truthfulness, Forbearance and Gratitude is the ultimate teaching His Holiness would like to pass on to all beings. May the teachings of Lord Buddha guide you through all walks of life… ~Jendhamuni Sos

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.

Just the way it is

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
