Forever comes along one right-now at a time. This is eternity. It will always be like this. Oh, the circumstances will change constantly, but it will still be one instant at a time.
I'm not saying live for the moment, just in it. Learn to stop reminiscing about the past, daydreaming about the future, or fantasizing about what you should have said.
If you don't learn how to live in the present, you will miss eternity.... one moment at a time.
Welcome to the Temple! Our purpose is to promote the study and practice of the Buddha's way. I am Rev. Hugh Ryunyo King.
We will try to make information available about ALL branches of Buddhism. and encourage ALL Buddhist practices. I, myself, am partial to the Sukhavati ("Pure-land") practices.
Besides the links at the top of the page, we have links to:http://www.orgsites.com/ca/buddhism/index.html
- our Library with Sutras and both traditional and modern commentaries
- Buddhism for Dum-dums, a blatant rip-off! Still under construction. Probably always will be.
The picture below the statue of Kannon (Kuan Yin, Avalokitesvara) at Mount Putuo near Shanghai, considered one of China's "holy mountains". It was a photograph sent to us by Peng Yau Tan, of Singapore. It was taken while he was on a pilgrimage to the Temples there. He has invited us to use the picture here.
Thank you, Peng Yau Tan.
May all beings attain Perfect Peace.
