This soundtrack from the movie "Himalaya" featuring tibetan voice of Tsering Lodoe has dug itself deep into my head, absolutely a heart song:

All beings like yourself are responsible for their own actions. Suffering or happiness is created through one's relationship to experience, not by experience itself. Although I wish only the best for you, I know that your happiness or unhappiness depends on your actions, not on my wishes for you.
May you not be caught in reactivity.

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

David2... this one is better... 8-)



Originally this came out under the band name of Colorpulse, but seems to have been retrospectively renamed Symphony Of Science based on its Youtube success, and so as to turn it into a series of sorts.

Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again. O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.(Dhp - 153, 154)

Nada Surf, "The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy".

No one wants to live this fiction
Where didn't we go wrong?
With a clear eye but a clouded mind

The stars are indifferent to astronomy
And all that we think we know
Mars will salute your autonomy
But he doesn't need to know

This man's voice can cut steel. Some true Appalachian, mountain music for you.

This is probably the most haunting piece of music I've ever heard and I am really addicted to it to the point where I've stated to use it as observing craving. It's from Kung Fu Panda when Master Oogway "dies"(ie turns into lotus leaves) so I'm sure there is an emotional connection there in addition to the music itself and also I enjoy Chinese music in general. Master Oogway is the modern day Buddhist master in popular culture where as I had yoda and Mr. Miagi as a kid lol.

Another great soul singer for Britain to be proud of.

I was lucky enough to hear this gem on the radio this morning on the way to work.

I've got the darkness
it was drinking from your cup
I've got the darkness
drinking from your cup
I said "Is this contagious?"
You said "just drink it up"

The first 12 seconds contains what is quite possibly the most influential lick in the history of jazz.
