the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

I am currently a student in US, but I am from Nepal, the country where lies Lumbini where the Buddha was born, and Kapilavastu where he grew up. But most of the people here have long forgotten the teachings of the Buddha, and the corrupt politicians are in relentless conflict with each other only contributing to make it one of the poorest (economically) countries in the world.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.
