    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...

    His Holiness

    "If you want others around you to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." The Dalai Lama said those inspiring words and has a world wide following. I ordered two of his books The Art of Happiness and The Universe in a Single Atom. If you...

    The Practice Of Generosity – Can You Help ?

    Giving with an open heart brings us joy and directly benefits others. Goods are then shared more equitably within our society and among nations, soothing the ill-feeling of social inequity and promoting world peace. Sharing is a source of our continued existence as a species...

    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...

    The Joy Was Worth the Effort!

    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...

    My Reply To The Dalai Lama On The Subject Of Money As The Source Of Happiness

    Recently the Dalai Lama said the following with over 3,704,404 "like" this since he shared this since, May 28 at 11:38pm to present day. What he said is, "We are, you might say, “brainwashed” into thinking that money is the source of happiness, while what we really need to...

    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...
