1. A love like that

    Comment

    “And still, after all this time,
    The sun never says to the earth,
    “You owe Me.”

    Look what happens with
    A love like that,
    It lights the Whole Sky.”
    ― Hafez

  2. Every rose

    Every rose that is sweet-scented within, that rose is telling of the secrets of the universal. ~ Rumi

  3. Real Friends

    A real friend would forgive
    If I did something wrong
    A real friend will lend a hand
    Whenever I’m not strong
    A real friend would listen
    If I tried to speak
    A real friend will accept
    Whether I am strong or weak
    A real friend would care
    If I ever fell ill
    A real friend will know
    How I really feel
    A real friend would always be there
    If I need them by my side
    A real friend will remember me
    Long after I have died
    A real friend would be forever
    If I even moved away
    A real friend will never truly leave
    In each other’s hearts we shall always stay

  4. Priceless Love

    89

    Love is Priceless,
    Nothing could buy it,
    no one can sell an “I love you” on e-bay.
    A hug at wal-mart
    a Kiss at k-mart.
    a “you still so pretty” when your old and Grey,
    a “you my only one” when you on your death bed.
    Love may have its Prices,
    but all together it’s priceless.
    Be happy with what you got,
    Don’t want a super star,
    when you have a sweet heart.
    Don’t want a Bad boy,
    when you have a humor man.
    Don’t take things for granted,
    be happy
    cause remember
    …….Love is Priceless…..

  5. Letting Go of our clinging

    41

    As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, so the wise are not shaken by blame and praise. As a deep lake is clear and calm, so the wise become tranquil after they listened to the truth.

    Good people walk on regardless of what happens to them. Good people do not babble on about their desires. Whether touched by happiness or by sorrow, the wise never appear elated or depressed…~Lord Buddha

     

  6. Smile is a simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort

    42

    Smile. It is a simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort. A smile can cause boundaries to melt, hearts to warm up, and distances to reduce. Why don’t we smile more often? Is it too tough to smile? The answer lies in our attitude towards life. If we are more accepting of situations, we will be able to smile more easily. Always wear a smile. Remember, without your smile, your attire is incomplete. ~ Simran Khurana

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

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.
