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.

Why are you so unhappy?

Why are you so unhappy?
Because 99,9 per cent
of everything you think
and everything you do
is for yourself —
and there isn’t one.

  1. *smiles* But I'm not. Honest! *grins*

    Seeing the light and reflection in that drop of water is just so awesome isn't it?

  2. I guess 'unhappy' includes things like tension, stress, disappointment, etc. that we come across during our work and relationships. How would like be without these negative emotions?

    Yes its awesome indeed~ nature and life is such great teacher, always there to teach as long as we're present.
