The Tiger Within

[Tiger] Woods is also finding inner peace in an annual pilgrimage with his mother to a Thai Buddhist temple near Los Angeles. He admits he used to submit to sitting through the forty-five-minute ritual of Buddhist scripture strictly to appease Kultida's wish that he stay in touch with his Thai heritage, but before his last visit, which took place the day before Christmas, he found himself looking forward to the experience."

I can see now how some of the pivotal points of Buddhism are applying to my life," says Woods, who wears a gold Buddha around his neck. "Staying balanced and calm and internally strong. The key thing is that you meditate to discover and rectify the faults within yourself, and not rely on others to bail you out. In my position, that's very important."


Hey, that's well said.
