Welcome  to www.lifeofcompassion.com

Reading this, you would most likely have recently (or all along) felt something unsatisfactory. Somehow, being comfortable financially, having a good career, even going home everyday to loving family, seems to still give you an emptiness.

Or it could be the other way around. A financial lost, unexpected bad career turn or death of a close relation, makes you feel life is meaningless and empty.

The reason for our emptiness is ego. Ego creates a false perception of self, causing us to seek a vicious cycle of gratification that never ends. Like quenching a parched throat from a river of sand.

Within this website, we work towards helping each other:

  1. Understand, face and prepare for our life and death to come
  2. Live compassionately and mindfully

I have just recently started LoC.com officially in February 2016, and hope to see this site add to the content quickly and efficiently. Meanwhile, please feel free to register with us here {HYPERLINK}, and I will update everyone via email whenever there are any major updates. Some of our next action plans include:

  1. Writing and uploading a first Article!
  2. Updating the glossary with the most common Buddhist terms and references
  3. Providing a brief history of Buddhism and other resources for easy reading and reference
  4. Building a daily guide – a digital Dhammapada to help beginners learn, understand and practice the Buddhist way for compassionate living
  5. Creating a daily Quote engine – for emails and widgets on Android and iPhone

We are fortunate to be living in a digital age, where knowledge and information are abundantly provided on the web. Our website seeks to bring together Buddhist learners and practitioners, to form an online community and help each other in learning and practicing the way of mindful, compassionate living.

Thank you so much for being here, and I hope we’ll be able to walk this journey together.

I end this note, with a short mantra that is recited in morning meditations by many Buddhists around the world everyday:

I seek refuge until I am enlightened,
in the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha.
From the positive potential I generate through studying these teachings,
may I attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all mankind.
