Where you are

 

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." ~Desmond Tutu

The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud — the obstacles of life and its suffering. … The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. … Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. ~Goldie Hawn

    THE BEST RETURN GIFT TO LIFE___
    Nobody knows how many, seconds, minutes, days, months or years are remaining in his account. When we make a graph of our lives we find ourselves only as consumers of verious commodities and articles which indicate that we are takers but to be a giver for the rest of your life kindness, love and compassion are the best return gift to life. Have a nice day Jendhamuni Sos.

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.

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.

5. Be detached from desire your whole life long.

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
