Why Am I Blogging

The Buddha said, “The gift of the Dhamma excels all gifts” (Dhammapada 354).

I became a Buddhist in 2011. Ever since then I have been discovering just how the awesome the Dharma is.

On the path, I have had to unlearn a lot of Western ideas and ways of thinking. I struggled with the six realms, karma, and rebirth.

In the process, I have mediated and have seen my life change. I am more loving, caring, and peaceful inside. Buddhism has changed me for the better.

I decided to blog in order to share the treasure of the the Dharma with others.

I already do a weekly podcast called 5 Minute Dharma. But I thought it would be great for people to get a daily dose of Dharma.

So welcome to my Buddhist blog. I hope that Buddha’s wisdom enlightens your path.

NOTE: Dharma is the Sanskrit for the Pali, Dhamma.
