There are a lot of resources and books on the internet that can help people who have a passing interest in Buddhism or have a committed practice. I’ve spent a lot of time looking through these websites, and found that there aren’t enough blogs that are  sharing actual practice experience. I believe that the heart of Buddhism and its benefit comes from an experiential level. My intention for putting up this blog is to hopefully share what little I can about my daily practice and other things I’ve found helpful.

As for myself, I was born in the Philippines, grew up in the United States, and am currently living in Europe. Somewhere in-between all this I became Buddhist. I practice within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, specifically within the Gelug tradition, but I have interest in all traditions, both from Tibet and Buddhism as a whole.

My approach is more non-sectarian and I believe all beliefs and faiths provide something beneficial as a whole. I think people interested in finding a spiritual practice should explore many traditions until they find one that suits them. Maybe this blog is just a small blip along that journey until the right one appears. As often many Tibetan teachers say, there’s no rush to jump into anything. Its better to check everything out.

And with that, I hope you find something useful here. Feel free to leave comments and check in every now and then =D

  1. Where do you practice in Sweden? I travel to Stockholm (I work for Ericsson) quite a bit and have tried to find a Tibetan Center without a lot of luck.

  2. Hello Lee – thank you for visiting Planting Words. Interesting to see Lama Zopa on your site – we were talking about him this morning – my friend is just about to spend some time cooking in a retreat centre in New Zealand. Warmest, Fiona

  3. Thank you for this beautiful blog. I am Mexican and began exploring Buddhism (intermitently, I’ll admit) about two years ago, but haven’t found myself a teacher yet. However, the more I read about Buddhist practice, the more I feel it to already be a part of me, and your words inspire me to become a better buddhist.
    May you find your way to enlightenment.

    • Hi Jean Paul

      Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad to hear (as I’m sure many others would be), that the Dharma is taking root in your life. Good luck with your journey, I hope you meet many good supporting friends along the way =D

    Hey Lee! As you know, I have been reading your blog and I think highly of it. I find the ideals behind it inspiring and uplifting and worthy of an award that symbolizes these ideals. I have nominated you for the Liebster blog award given to blogs with less than 200 followers who deserve a little more recognition (although I have no idea how many followers you have!).

    There are a few simple rules that go along with the award: they are as follows as passed down to me.

    1.Give a shout out to the blogger who nominated you by linking back to their blog.
    2. Nominate 5 other blogs that have less than 200 followers.
    3. Spread the good blog karma.
    Lastly, don’t forget to add the Liebster blog award image to your post.
