1. I smile when I see you happy

    Do you know the difference between your smile and my smile? You smile when you are happy,
    and, I smile, when I see you happy. ~sms

  2. A Beautiful Day

    A Beautiful Day
    There’s not a cloud today
    Just a sky of blue
    As the sun shines bright
    It feels so new

    As you walk down the street
    You can see smiles from all around
    It looks like everyone
    Came to town

    To enjoy the Summer’s day
    And let time stand still
    For a little while
    Just enjoy.

    When I give light
    I also receive,
    When I smile
    I give light to others,
    they give light to me.

    It is with the light
    all of us give, all,
    that we are free.

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.
