1. Looking for inner peace…

    Comment

    If you’re looking for inner peace from the outside world, you’re not going to get that. The inner peace starts with looking at you from the inside. Understanding that everything that comes to you is what you are. Everything from friends to boyfriends to the job you get – it’s all a direct reflection of what you are on the inside. ~Mary J. Blige

  4. Seek for silence

    Comment

    When things get awfully tiring, seek for silence, most of the time the loudest lessons are learned at the most quiet corners of our hearts. ~Kuya Rene

  5. Have a long walk with someone

    Comment

    Life is full of uncertainties; we’ll never know when our time on earth is up until it’s over. So take many pics, laugh much… Take time to look up at the stars. Have a long walk with someone…Feel the cold wind… Smile a lot and love like you’ve never been hurt. Every 60 seconds you miss is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back. ~Terry

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.
