1. That special someone

    Comment

    Happiness is meeting that special someone that you can share your world with by making her laugh, acting silly showing her compassion at her most vulnerable times and just being there anytime she needs support. On the other hand you must also let her into your world as well by showing her your vulnerability of being a man who lives and breathes and makes mistake and not a superman she dreams. Only then can you co-exist together and find true happiness. ~Unknown

  2. A soul you can connect

    There is nothing better on this earth, than a soul you can connect with on every level.

  3. In a deep relationship

    Comment

    In a deep relationship, there’s no longer a boundary between you and the other person. You are her and she is you. Your suffering is her suffering. Your understanding of your own suffering helps your loved one to suffer less. Suffering and happiness are no longer individual matters. What happens to your loved one happens to you. What happens to you happens to your loved one.

    In true love, there’s no more separation or discrimination. His happiness is your happiness. Your suffering is his suffering. You can no longer say, “That’s your problem.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

  4. True love is a sacred flame

    Be truthful, gentle and fearless. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

    True love is a sacred flame
    That burns eternally,
    And none can dim its special glow
    Or change its destiny.
    True love speaks in tender tones
    And hears with gentle ear,
    True love gives with open heart
    And true love conquers fear.
    True love makes no harsh demands
    It neither rules nor binds,
    And true love holds with gentle hands
    The hearts that it entwines.

  5. True love is just like rain, it touches us all

    Comment

    Real love, proves beauty isn’t always an outward appearance.

    If you are willing to trust in a person when all others tell you to go against it, if you are willing to risk getting your heart broken because you believe in that other person, Then that is true love. ~Source Unknown

    Comment

    In true love, there is no mountain too high to climb.
    No river too wide to cross. And most of all
    in true love there is no ends. ~Unknown

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.

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.
