Guided meditation scripts – Theravada tradition

This is the first time I tried this. It is for my two newly met friends, who wanted to meditate in Vietnam. As they are foreigners, I can’t send them the original scripts in Vietnamese of my master, Su Tam Phap. What I did was to translate the script to English and record them by my voice. And here it is. While it is still not the perfect version or translation or such those things, I hope it’s useful and usable to my foreigner friends. Try and let me know… Xem chi tiết…

Are you proud of what you are doing?

img_6628In my trip to US early December, I had a chance to dine in a 176-year-old restaurant. What an impressing number. The restaurant is a family-run business with 5-6 generations on it already. The food was great and I liked it a lot with fresh and delicious seafood, well-served in a cold night outside, but warm inside.

The food is good, no surprise. Yet, my surprise was not the food itself, it was another one. It came to my interest once I overheard the main waiter, who hosted us, introduced about the restaurant and what they are proud of.
He stood there right behind my back, with his voice full of energy, talking about the food, the restaurant and his recommendation to us about wine and food for the night. You can’t miss the passion through his voice. Xem chi tiết…

Who can bother me?

oh-bother

At the lobby of KMS office, on the way back from lunch, I met up with one of my old friends. We said hello and exchanged some joking questions… “What are you doing here?” I asked. And my friend returned: “To bother you…”

Just a joke and so… But it did spark a thought in my mind. At that moment, I replied “Who can bother me?” That’s an interesting thought. In an absolute reality, the only one can bother you is yourself, your mind. Why? Xem chi tiết…

Happiness comes once you know that you has helped someone

01I wrote this as part of the conversation I have maintained internally with KMSers at KMS Technology Vietnam. I and think it’s worth to share it here to everyone as well. Now, I know why I had the urge to do this slide convincing people to read before: Why do you have to read?. And the result has come after all.

Hello all,

We are starting the long weekend and the long holiday very soon. And I would like to share with you an email I got last weekend (see below). A moving message from one of my friends (I translated it from Vietnamese to English to be consistent with the content here). Happiness certainly comes from the moment you know that you can help others. Xem chi tiết…

Higher position, attachment, greed and how to deal with it?

Avatar 2014Last week, after sharing some suggestions to deal with stress, I got a few interesting questions and thoughts from one of my staff that I want to share with you here, along with my thoughts. These are not easy to answer questions for anyone I would say. The other issue is that some things that work for this one person may not work for the other person. Xem chi tiết…

“The truth will set you free…”

Avatar 2014Suddenly, got this meaningful quote in the morning, once turning on my music channel: “The truth will set you free…”

Yes, freedom is from knowing and understanding the truth (not the truth or justice that you see in the news – those are too noisy)… Remember that freedom is the path to happiness, to liberate you.

And that truth is of the meaning of your life, that you want to know. Do you know it?

If you don’t, sit down and meditate. That’s a way of life, a very happy one. You’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel.

May you be well, happy and peaceful.

I certainly call this happiness

This is the note of a happy man, writing to his co-workers on the 7th anniversary of the company called KMS Technology, which he co-founded and has been part of it since then.

Dear all KMSers,

I got Quynh’s (Xuka Lam) status posted here in the morning, reminding me that today is the official anniversary day for KMS, the 7th. And we’re turning 8 from today, officially.

And then, once I viewed all of the photos captured in our YEP2015 last Friday, it easily overwhelmed me. Xem chi tiết…

Reading, a proven path to advance your life

The new year 2016 has come. It’s always the good time to look back. And this is one of the things I would like to share again with you on the reading topic. On the way to work today, me and my wife have talked about the fact that whoever can read and commit to read, that are the very ones to have a lot more potential to grow their career and advance their lives. My CEO, her former CEOs, our top co-workers. They are all great readers. Xem chi tiết…

Things change anyway. Pick the best ones for you

01

Whether you want it or not, believe it or not, the you today is always different than the you yesterday. It doesn’t need to be New Year to change yourself. You’re already changed in each and every minute. 

So, be the new you and be the change in you each and everyday. Change for the better, change for happiness, change for loving kindness. Things like Happy New Year should be a great reminder to look back and change. Do it now. 

If you’re confused and don’t know what to do next, you can sit down, meditate for 10 mins to calm your mind down. And that’s when you start to see what to do next. Go meditate.
