Temptation cannot touch

The wind cannot overturn a mountain.
Temptation cannot touch the man
Who is awake, strong and humble,
Who masters himself and minds the law.

Winning gives birth to hostility.
Losing, one lies down in pain.
The calmed lie down with ease,
having set winning & losing aside.

~Dhammapada, The Buddha

    Dear Jenny, Do you know how
    powerful a child's prayer is.
    It's so powerful in the vicinity of a
    child that God fly's in close to the
    child and the immediate effect of
    God's blessings are so greatly
    enjoyed by the child's life.
    And this child's message to God
    is so inseparably devoted to God.
    In my believes this is what
    a child prayers are to God.
    And to you dear Jenny I say
    Thank you very much.

    Great posture, is not distracted by the camera or the people around even knowing they are there "The wind cannot overturn a mountain" . That's deep meditation, even it bring peace to see him, like a Buddha statue, but living one with a infinite compassion to give. A future master.

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.

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
