My family was Chinese-School Buddhists;we paid respect to Chinese Gods and offered food to our ancesters. We had little knowledge of real Buddhism. When I was a university student, I lived my life in a very worldly and reckless way which I thought was fullfiling like going out at nights and drinking. This lifestyle gave me a lot of troubles at the time but I did not know the way out. However, Meditation and studying Buddhist Dhamma have changed my life. I grew more patient and conscious, able to avoid all kinds of circumstances that would cloud my mind.I stopped taking sleeping pills,drinking, going out at nights and being short-tempered and started to accruing merits.......
