The spiritual path

If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone. There is no companionship with the immature.
~Buddha, The Dhammapada

In war, both the winners and losers lose. ~Venerable Wuling

    I love this Buddha quote as I'm sure, you know, dearest Jendhamuni. Lord Buddha also told us that there are only 2 mistakes to make: Not to take the first step of the journey and not going all the way.

    +Sofie Løve Forsberg I do understand my dear. I always travel the path alone. No matter what obstacles I coped, I would never ever give up. Sometimes I tripped and fell because I was too young, but continue to get up and moved forward. I am so happy to have you here with us. Love you always, my dear.

    +Jendhamuni Sos As the scandinavian philosopher Kierkegaard said so many years ago: "Life is lived forwards but understood backwards."
    Chances are that the distance between the living and the understanding gets smaller as we move forward. 🙂
    I hope you are doing fine and not stressing yourself in any way even though you are busy always….

    Jesus' crucifixion, burial caves resurrection. He meet with witnesses, 40 days. See you again in the state of the Orient. So the church building house gossip picture symbols, symbols of his play by the "Fengze Zhongfu" to desperate measure to show his sincerity.

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.

Just the way it is

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
2. Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.
4. Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.
5. Be detached from desire your whole life long.
6. Do not regret what you have done.
7. Never be jealous.
8. Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.
9. Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself nor... read more
