    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...

    Complex Human

    This is so true. How many of us have forgotten that the essence of life is to live in the present and not to worry too much about the past and the future? I mean, it is ok to think about the future and look back to your past. Our future and past guide us. But if we cling on them...

    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
