1. Love leaves a memory no one can steal

    Comment

    My lifetime favorite shirt my late little sister Alanthara gave me in 2004. She knew I love old fashioned things very much. I only wore it once when she was alive because I love it so much. I didn’t want the shirt to get old. Alanthara could read my mind. Always gave me the right thing.  I could see her laughing, making fun of me in a good way whenever I think of her.

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~From an Irish headstone

    I do not need a wealthy father, but a father with beautiful Heart… Jendhamuni

     

    You may have thought I didn’t see,
    Or that I hadn’t heard,
    Life lessons that you taught to me,
    But I got every word.
    Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
    And that we’d grow apart,
    But Dad, I picked up everything,
    It’s written on my heart.
    Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be
    The person I am today;
    You built a strong foundation
    No one can take away…

    Comment

    Today is the first anniversary of my father’s death. My wonderful father passed a way last year — Friday December 19, 2014. We love him and miss him more and more each day. My dad left us peacefully, knowing one day we will meet again. ~Jendhamuni

    “Happiness or sorrow –
    Whatever befalls you,
    Walk on,
    Untouched, unattached.”

    Never forget the day I asked my grand uncle Venerable Dong to show me the lotus pond so I could see the most beautiful pink lotus flower I’ve been looking for, nearby my grandma’s house … ~Jendhamuni

    Venerable Dong, my 95-year-old grand uncle just passed a way today, November 23rd, 2015 at 1 P.M [1 A.M. US Eastern time]. Venerable is my late grandma’s little brother, the youngest child in their family. He was a very healthy Buddhist monk. But he had to leave us due to old age… ~Jendhamuni

    Every meeting led to a parting, and so it would, as long as life was mortal. In every meeting there was some of the sorrow of parting, but in everything parting there was some of the joy of meeting as well. ~Cassandra Clare

    Happy Venerable Dong

    “We won’t say goodbye because true love never dies.” ~Unknown

    Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil… ~Robert Duvall

Khmer Tipitaka 1 – 110

The Tipitaka or Pali canon, is the collection of primary Pali language texts which form the doctrinal foundation of Theravada Buddhism. The three divisions of the Tipitaka are: Vinaya Pitaka, Sutta Pitaka, Abhidhamma Pitaka. ព្រះត្រៃបិដក ប្រែថា កញ្រ្ចែង ឬ ល្អី​ ៣ សម្រាប់ដាក់ផ្ទុកពាក្យពេចន៍នៃព្រះសម្មាសម្ពុទ្ធ

Listen to Khmer literature and Dhamma talk by His Holiness Jotannano Chuon Nath, Supreme Patriarch of Cambodia Buddhism.

Jendhamuni

As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, so the wise are not shaken by blame and praise. As a deep lake is clear and calm, so the wise become tranquil after they listened to the truth... Good people walk on regardless of what happens to them. Good people do not babble on about their desires. Whether touched by happiness or by sorrow, the wise never appear elated or depressed… ~The Dhammapada

Should anyone wish to ridicule me and make me an object of jest and scorn why should I possibly care if I have dedicated myself to others?

Let them do as they wish with me so long as it does not harm them. May no one who encounters me ever have an insignificant contact.

Regardless whether those whom I meet respond towards me with anger or faith, may the mere fact of our meeting contribute to the fulfilment of their wishes.

May the slander, harm and all forms of abuse that anyone should direct towards me act as a cause of their enlightenment.
