I just found out the Chinese(T) edition of SIY has a book trailer where Colin's cartoons become animations.

One Billion Acts of Peace
Generosity is one of the most important practices in Buddhism. It is the first and most important of the Ten Perfections. It has even been said that if you master only generosity, the other nine Perfections happen by themselves. Today, let's practice generosity with our money, time, or labor.

Zen Master Suzuki-roshi once said, "Where there is practice, there is enlightenment." Give yourself the gift of practice for 1 hour today.

3 Days of Vesak. #billionacts
One Billion Acts of Peace
For the last day of 3 Days of Vesak, read a discourse from the ancient Buddhist texts. I recommend reading anything from the Nikayas, the oldest collection of the teachings of the Buddha. You can find a good subset at this link: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/sutta.html . You can also find a collection of the "greatest hits" from the Nikayas in Bhikkhu Bodhi's wonderful book, In the Buddha's Words: An Anthology of Discourses from the Pal...

3 Days of Vesak

Vesak Day is the holiest day in the Buddhist calendar. It celebrates the three most important events in the life of the Buddha: his birth, his awakening, and his death. I invite you to celebrate Vesak Day with me by doing these 3 things over 3 days: a day of practice (meditating for an hour), a day of generosity (giving labor or resources) and a day of learning (read something taught by the Buddha). Please participate with me below, and feel free to share this with all your friends.

Minister Heng Swee Keat is a genuinely wonderful human being. Singapore (and the world) is lucky to have someone like him in a position of leadership. Please all pray for him.

Near the end of my most recent audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, I put my palms together, bowed to him, and solemnly asked, "Your Holiness, what is the most important thing I can do for you and the Tibetan people?" He replied with a huge smile, "When you meet Chinese people, ...
