    The Joy Was Worth the Effort!

    Knowing Ourselves

    The purpose of studying Buddhism is not to study Buddhism, but to study ourselves. That is why we have teaching. But the teaching is not ourselves. It is some explanation of ourselves. To study the teaching is to know yourselves. That is why we do not ever attach to the teaching...

    A Man I Admire

    He advocates freedom of speech and religion, which I believe are integral in any society. He is a kind, peace-loving, articulate, and charming person. I definitely respect and admire him. He has an air of holiness and wisdom that transcends religious boundaries, somehow. Like...

    The Art Of Happiness

    This is probably the most inspiring book I have ever read. The Dalai Lama talks about in life, the main goal is to find happiness. But he states, "Do no confuse happiness with pleasure. Pleasure comes in many forms such as a winning streak in Vegas, a hot bath on a cold day...
