The first step

Take the first step
You don't have to
see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.

Without forgiveness life is governed by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. ~Roberto Assagioli

    The first step of faith can hurt as much as doing nothing at all and yet the world still turns and we go forward into the next day, wondering?, what if? And all manner of other things along the way and so just where does that first step lie?, anyway?, when there is such great distances?….

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.
