I met a monk in Thailand who lived and meditated in a cave for about four years. This is actually humanly possible! His mediation cave just so happened to be inhabited by a king cobra. The monk obviously feared for his life, so he made pact with the cobra. The agreemen...

I have been back home now from international travels for about 3 weeks, and it sure feels good to be HOME! Home for me is a symbol of what is good in my life. However, traveling from a location with a 15-hour time difference has it’s difficulties. Jet-lag naturally too...

I have always had a fascination with weapons when I was growing up. Maybe I could attribute it to practicing martial arts since I was four years old. Maybe it was from watching television shows like the Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers. I also grew up in Newcastle Calif...

I knew the Vipassana 10 day meditation was going to be a challenge the moment I stepped on to the grounds of the Dhamma Joti Center in Burma. The humidity was thick and the center was located right next to a swampy pond. Needless to say, there were tons of mosquitos s...

The heart of India happens to reside at the Ganga Prem Hospice, in the form of a 14 year old girl with terminal brain cancer. This heaven-sent angel is Reshu; she is the reason my own heart has been breaking and the cracks have been sealed with hope. Reshu came from a...
