  2. Please think before believing in Nonsense

  3. Soaked Jamaica braces for Hurricane Sandy


    Hope Sandy won't come this way

    KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Hurricane Sandy pounded Jamaica with heavy rain as it headed for landfall Wednesday near the country's most populous city on a track that would carry it across the Caribbean island to Cuba, and a possible threat to Florida.

    The island's international airports closed, cruise ships changed their itineraries and police ordered 48-hour curfews in major towns to keep people off the streets and deter looting as the late-season storm neared Jamaica's south coast. Police slowly drove through drenched communities in the capital of Kingston with their cruisers' lights flashing.

    The 18th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season was forecast to make landfall in the vicinity of Kingston Wednesday afternoon and then spin on into eastern Cuba overnight. It was expected to pass west of the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, where pretrial hearings were being held for a suspect in the deadly 2000 attack on the destroyer USS Cole off Yemen. #wp

  5. Meet a 3-year-old, little Ananda


    Do everything with a mind that lets go. Don’t accept praise or gain or anything else. If you let go a little you will have a little peace; if you let go a lot you will have a lot of peace; if you let go completely you will have complete peace. ~ Ajahn Chah #wp

  6. My smile didn't last too long today


    It's Friday, of course, I have plenty of reasons to smile, but not at this moment, my heart is breaking…

    I saw someone boiling lobsters alive, this afternoon. I didn't know that lobsters are being cooked alive most of the time. I wanted to help them out of the pot…I didn't know what to do, by the time I saw them, they were half dead, half alive…I wanted to cry, wanted to help them out of the pot…I was confused. I thought to myself, why would someone wanted to kill the living lobsters for food, when in America, there are plenty of dead meat in market already….Why? Human desire is so unlimited. Nothing is enough. Keep wanting this and that, craving for this and that. Why can't someone have mercy on these poor lobsters who also fear death, just like us….I am so confused, my smile will not be the same today… #wp  

    My smile didn’t last too long…September 21, 2012.

  7. Cauliflower and Tofu stir fry


    My lunch today. Super super super hot! The hotter, the better!  I love decorating my food with raw vegetables, especially baby spinach, chilly peppers, celery, and baby tomatoes.

  8. You must reflect and meditate


    If you listen to the Dhamma teachings but don't practice you're like a ladle in a soup pot. The ladle is in the soup pot every day, but it doesn't know the taste of the soup. You must reflect and meditate. ~Ajahn Chah #wp

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.
