Vesakha I

Often samsara is so confusing we don’t know which way to turn. Just as often we have to struggle to make sense of it.The Buddha’s Dhamma offers sound and practical advice on how to move ahead and gives meaning to what might otherwise appear meaningless. That is why I take refuge in the Buddha, his Dhamma and his Sangha. And to all my readers who have done the same I wish blessings, good-will and happiness this Vesakha .

Yes, our worlds are indeed filled with desire and ill-will. Should we merely be led by our undependable minds, we almost certainly would do things which do not benefit our future. But luckily, we have the Buddha and the Dhamma he discovered to guide us in this life.

I often ponder: What would we do without the Buddha? And for his wonderful teachings, I am eternally grateful to him.

Happy Vesaka to one and all! :-)

With my kindest wishes

Hey, that first photo was taken in the city where I live. :) It's the intersection of Brush and Macomb streets in Detroit, Michigan. In defense of my community, that first pole on the left was either spun around or manipulated digitally.

Oh, and Happy Vesak! :)

Thank you Ven Sir, I wish you and all your readers well and happy this Vesak day and beyond. Yes samsara is a sea most difficult to traverse and yes I take refuge in the Lord Buddha, His Dhamma and His Sangha as an anchor of life.
