Loving-kindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy, Equanimity~~
Loving-kindness~~wishing beings to be well and happy
Compassion~~wishing beings to be free from suffering
Appreciative Joy~~wishing the wealth and success of beings not be lost
Equanimity~~even mind in facing life, avoiding likes and dislikes
Regard all life’s encounters with loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity, and thus balance the emotion. When one is emotionally healthy, one can exercise wisdom well and naturally be free from many man-made, avoidable suffering.
For the welfare and happiness of all, Tusita Hermitage will be holding a large Pindapata event on 24th November. Venerable U Mangala will lead the community of monks and nuns (including young novice monks and young sayalays) on the Pindapata at Jalan Sin San Tu A, Taman Genesis.

Together, let us make this a fulfilling event! See you there!
Live in the present moment~~
The Buddha says, do not follow the past, and do not have expectation for the future… With insight see each presently arising condition…
Truly, NOW is the only opportunity that can be made use of for achievement.

Impermanence of Life~~
Life is impermanent, like a dream, like an illusion. Why grasp it and suffer for the grasping?
Life is impermanent. It comprises opportunities which are also impermanent. Let us cherish these opportunities which are so transcient, especially the opportunity of encountering True Dhamma, the opportunity of liberation from suffering.
Life is impermanent. Understanding the impermanence of life, the tests and trials of life become more bearable.
