Day of Joy (2)

happy-birthday
Thousand Stars has been in Thailand for four years. We were registered on February 10, 2005. At that time, there were very few of us and we didn’t even have a foundation house. Now we grow having more friends and doing more work.

Thanks to everyone who came to the celebration and to other friends who couldn’t come but have been with us all along. We are committed to bring starlight to the world.

Ven. Dr. Anil’s talk on mind training and self development was an inspiration to all of us. Its message is simple but profound: to look inside to get to know more about yourself. That is how you can tame your mind. When you look at a Buddha image, don’t ask for outer power. If the image has any supernatural power, it’s from your own mind when it can perceive Buddha as a role model, the supreme teacher who goes beyond defilements.
