About me

This blog is created by a Buddhist living in Singapore. He embraces the Mahayana spirit of Bodhicitta, deeply respecting all Buddhist Traditions as expressions of Kindness guiding us on the path towards human perfection ~ Buddhahood.

He likes to post stuff that he had read or think is good to share here, sometimes he adds a little comments here and there... just sometimes..

“Sariputra, if there are people who have already made the vow, who now make the vow, or who are about to make the vow, ‘I desire to be born in Amitabha’s country,’ these people, whether born in the past, now being born, or to be born in the future, all will irreversibly attain to anuttarasamyaksambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all good men and good women, if they are among those who have faith, should make the vow, ‘I will be born in that country.’”

~ Amitabha Sutra

When I obtain the Buddhahood, any being of the boundless and inconceivable Buddha-worlds of the ten quarters whose body if be touched by the rays of my splendour should not make his body and mind gentle and peaceful, in such a state that he is far more sublime than the gods and men, then may I not attain the enlightenment.

Buddhist Community Announcement (Singapore)

I'm actually new to Palelai Buddhist Temple and its Sangha. I was requested by a Dhamma friend to make this announcement. I personally find this a good opportunity to practise Dana, build karmic links with the many distinguished members of Sangha from various countries, and support the Triple Gems when we are still able to. We never know what surprises tomorrow or next moment may bring. It's still kind of early as the event is in Feb 07. (In case you may forget it, note this event in your mobile calendar with alarm on.) I think if I'm still alive then, I might attend this auspicious event too. See you there. :)
