1. The True Meaning of Love


    Love is available to all
    Love is steady, unshakable, and does not fall.
    Love is unconditional and is easy to obtain
    Love covers and eschew all sickness and pain.
    Love abides deep within the heart
    Love is a substance and it never should depart.
    Love is caring for others and taking them as your own
    Love is taking time to call old friends on the telephone.
    Love carries and brings peace, humility and joy
    Love spreads through the soul of every girl and boy.
    Love never lies and keeps secrets inside
    Love helps your conscience and soul collide.
    Get some love and keep it forever
    You will need it when going through the stormy weather.
    Love is your weapon for all evil and hate
    Love is like a two-edged sword; to help or to hurt
    Love is silent and never screams nor blurt.

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.
