The one who has nothing

Young and old beggars in my country, Cambodia, watching tourists hopelessly
The man who has no money is poor, but one who has nothing but money is poorer. He only is rich who can enjoy without owning; he is poor who though he has millions is covetous ~Orison Swett Marden

    It was humbling in nature when I ventured as far as Asia. And they offered me a painting. Hand painted a weeks work for the artist for only £30 ! And how much did it cost me to get there ?

    I saw a parity of despair in my mind. And that painting is unique so you can't compare, that man's soul laid bare.

    True words.

    I think begging has lot of romanticism but children suffering hunger is one of the worst crimes humanity has committed. We no need many material things but food is like air, water and health. Buddha reject the asetism becouse we can starbe with no limits but no get nirvana and be reborn countesless times. Hunger is like asetism and is very destructive in children. In children is a destructive of happiness.

    In Malaysia, we saw beggars in every foods places. Some are true beggars & some are not. We just have to judge it ourselves, then drop some money..

My Reflection

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.
