What this blog is about

I was born into a Buddhist family in Singapore. I guess I have always been a Buddhist at heart. Am I a practicing buddhist? I'm not sure. I do try to practice. But try as I may, sometimes during the course of my life, things get hectic and I 'forget' to practice the sublime qualities such as Metta (loving Kindness), Karuna (Compassion), Mudita (Sympathetic Joy) and Uppekha (equanimity). Its very simple to understand these concepts, but very difficult to realize it and practice it earnestly.

This blog is about my experiences in practicing Buddhism in daily life, my reflections, my thoughts about what Buddhism means to me.
