Within the soul

Peace does not dwell in outward things, but within the soul; we may preserve it in the midst of the bitterest pain, if our will remains firm and submissive. Peace in this life springs from acquiescence, not in an exemption from suffering. ~Francis Fenelon

    True! Do not wish for free from suffering, hurt or pain. It's our acceptance that will bring us peace.

    Dear Jenny, To the humble, "great"
    ones among us who exemplify how
    "Friendship" is a choice, not a position.

    Thank you for being consent and
    "effete trendies" or " precious"
    In the caves of Love.

    Thank you for the beautiful blue ROSE.

    True peace does not dwell in outward things. Real peace comes when we trust Jesus with our souls to bring us to God. Thank you Jendhamuni Sos, my dear friend.

    Jendhamuni , I have read many of your beautiful messages and copied many of the images you bring on this page. What software runs the moving images? I was hoping to use them as a wallpaper of moving pics, but can't locate the software used. Can you help?

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.
