Update to buddhism today

I haven't been posting for some time, 2 years to be precise! hahaha. What have I been doing?

I've been busy planning and executing on my goals. You can view my entries at

Buddhism has always been part of me and my life. It is my intensity and focus that increases and decreases over time. The Buddha did state, "Strive on with diligence". Time on this earth is short and many times, we tend to forget this and focus on other goals.

This blog serves to remind me on my journey in life, to lead a balanced life and increase my focus on my Buddhist practices.

I recently read a book "Dipa Ma: The Life and Legacy of a Buddhist Master (Paperback)
by Amy Schmidt (Author), Sharon Salzberg (Foreword), Jack Kornfield (Afterword), Joseph Goldstein (Introduction)". This is truly an inspring book. Dipa Ma was born an ordinary woman. The book describes her journey from her homeland to Burma, her journey as she embarked on Vipassana meditation. More importantly, the rationale of her path and the benefits she achieved.

She has my utmost respect.
