The week often tires our body and our souls…

Be it if it was a great week or a challenging week, I always feel puja boost my power for the next.

Hearing Venerable Bensi’s discourse about Buddha touched my heart once again! Venerable shared how the Buddha rejoices at our vituous acts even when in our past lives, we may have hurt him or crossed path in an unpleasant way. Thank you, Buddha for your compassion and forgiving heart.

I want to be like you. Be just like you.

I have heard one of the Buddha’s story in the past and again today about his compassionate ways, in going all out to save you and me from sufferings. It still moves me to tears.

Buddha has endured sufferings like feeding people during a famine by turning himself into a gigantic fish and feeding the hungry with his flesh.

In another occasion, the Buddha in his previous life, to sought for Dharma to benefit sentient beings, he allowed his flesh to be cut and his body made into a candle holder to light lamps.

So grateful to the Buddha for all that he has done for us.

As I sang the melodious insightful praises in taking refuge, repentence and circumambulation, I thank the Triple Gems for the oppotunity to learn, practice, meditate, reflect, repent, supplicate and make offerings.

Thankful to hear today, Sister Dawn Chen’s sharing of how our thoughts will also have its cause and effect without actions taking place.

Ever wonder why some people can click with you like old friends, the moment you speak to them?

Or why certain people will never agree with anything you say even if you make perfect sense? But if someone else gave exactly the same point, they are accepted or even praised for the same point by the same person?

Is it any one’s fault? Well… it is the cause of our past that leads to our current effects. Sounds illogical to you?

Come for our Buddhist courses and find out more!

In addition, Sister Dawn also shared that without any material objects, we too can “KEEP CALM AND GAIN MERITS!”.

SMILE…

Be a good listener…

Speak kind words…

Lend a helping hand…

Be considerate.

May all sentient beings be well and happy!

May we all:

(๑•͈ᴗ•͈)❀ aspire to learn from the Buddha,

(๑•͈ᴗ•͈)❀ walk the eight-fold path,

(๑•͈ᴗ•͈)❀ listen to the Dharma,

(๑•͈ᴗ•͈)❀ practice the right way,
