||Aim and Objectives
This website is about the Laws of the nature, precisely, spritual laws of the nature, discovered by the Buddha. Dhamma-dana,
the gift of the noble teachings, is said by the Buddha to excel all other gifts (Dhammapada, 354). Those who expound His teachings — monks who preach
sermons or recite from the Tipitaka, teachers of meditation — frequently share the Truth, thus practicing the highest kind of generosity.
This website does not talk about the physical laws of the nature, for example, the gravety of the earth or speed of the light or properties of genes.
Who should view this website?
This website is aimed to those who are already interested in Buddhism or descendent of Buddhist ancestors born and brought up in Western countries.
This website is not targeted to convert anyone to Buddhism as there is no conversion in Buddhism.
The teaching of a Buddha is not for everybody,
who understands will take it and who do not will miss out, wandering in samsara cycle of life, count less existences, reborn again and again in
thirty one planes, most likely lower than human planes, because it is extremely difficult to gain human life and
above of human spear.
Someone asked Buddha, “Where human reappear (reborn) when they die?” Buddha said, “Pick some soil from the ground and put it on your nail of
your thumb. Now, compare this with the whole earth. The soil on the nail of thumb is a tiny portion of the
earth. Human who gain happy life after they die are very tiny portion.”Buddha gave this example to show how tiny portion of human gain happy life after they die. Buddha also gave an example how short a
human life is at that time, hundred years human life span. But Buddha said a human can live up to one hundred and sixty years at that time, two thousand five
hundred ago. It was recorded in Buddhist scriptures that some monks lived one hundred and sixty years two thousand five hundred years ago. A Buddha can only appear
when human life span is between one hundred thousands and one hundred years and the trend is decreasing.
Buddha said, "When you throw a stone into a pond you see bubbles appear and bust. Human life is that short, length
of time bubbles exist." Why Buddha gave that example? A human life is so short compare to the countless existences wandering in samsara. Only when a
Buddha appears, human, devas, and bramas eyes are opened and are able to practice to end this merry-go-round samsara and achieve nirvana.
Seconds after Buddha passed away, attained Mahaparinibbana, some monks cried, saying the eyes of the world is gone because without a Buddha nobody knows
about nirvana and how to attain nirvana.
"Through worldly round of many births
I ran my course unceasingly,
Seeking the maker of the house:
Painful is birth again and again,
House-builder! I behold thee now,
Again a house thou shalt not build;
All thy rafters are broken now,
The ridge-pole also is destroyed;
My mind, its elements dissolved,
The end of cravings has attained." -- Dhammapada.
Buddha had said:
"You, to whom the truths I have perceived have been made known by me, make them surely your own, practise them,
meditate upon them, spread them abroad: in order that the pure Dhamma may last long and be perpetuated for the good and the gain and the weal of gods and men."
What Albert Einstein says about Buddhism?
“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.
It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology.
Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on
a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural
and spiritual, and a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description.
If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs,
it would be Buddhism.”
--  Prof. Albert Einstein
Over great areas of the world
it still survives:
it is possible that in contact with western science,
and inspired by the spirit of history,
the original teaching of Gautama,
revived and purified,
may yet play a large part in the direction of human
-- H. G. WELLS (The Outline of History)
“To go to Him for refuge, to sing His praise, to do Him honour and to abide in His Dhamma is to act with understanding.”
Poet of ancient India
|"To cease from all evil,
To cultivate good,
To purify one's mind,
This is the teaching of all the Buddhas"
|"Impermanent are all compounded things.
Strive your deliverance with mindfulness."
-The last words of the Buddha
| "Purify your own mind
by means of generosity,
no attachment expecting,
detaching from all cravings,
acting with virtue,
developing mindfulness in breathing,
maintaining continuity by concentrating,
advancing in understanding."
"Purify your own mind
until no chance of defiling again,
no condition to be born again,
all pain out of the way,
only Nibbana to gain."
"So hard to encounter,
a Buddha's dispensation,
so difficult to gain,
a human life,
a sheer coincident,
to a happy one,
a rare opportunity,
to take a chance,
there is no one to blame,
other then oneself,
for missing the dhamma,
hard to come by,
knowing the dhamma,
will cease the cycle,
wandering in samsara,
life after life."
