    Because you’re beautiful
    This poem’s addressed
    To you
    Because you’re beautiful
    No matter what
    You do
    Because you’re beautiful
    The sun rises
    Every day
    Because you’re beautiful
    The mist shrouds a
    Dreamy day
    Because you’re beautiful
    A blossom blooms and holds
    Its scent
    Because you’re beautiful
    Songs sung in your heart
    Are meant
    Because you’re beautiful
    Reflections shine
    And glint
    Because you’re beautiful
    Poems are written
    Heaven sent
    Because you are beautiful
    This is all that this
    Poem’s said
    Just in case you may have
    Any doubt
    This poem’s heaven sent
    To tell you
    You are beautiful
    And that is what this poem
    Is about.

    Comment

    A blind man was begging with a board written…
    “I am blind. Please help me.”
    A man passing by and saw him.
    He took the board and wrote something.
    Since then the blind man receives heavy collection.
    Many people start giving him money.
    Do you know what the man wrote?
    “You are beautiful, but I cannot see you.”

    You are strong when you know your weaknesses.
    You are beautiful when you appreciate your flaws.
    You are wise when you learn from your mistakes.

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.
