What we do to ourselves

 

Holding anger is a poison.
It eats you from inside.
We think that hating is a weapon
that attacks the person who harmed us.
But hatred is a curved blade.
And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.

~Mitch Albom

    Sometimes to teach someone a lesson holding anger is good..it will reform them and save many others who could be hurt by that person..In such case holding anger is Godliness

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.

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.
