A pop song about renunciation...

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

And it kind of goes without saying, I'm still listening to Devin Townsend. But now my son too has been listening to Devin Townsend in the evenings too. His album Ghost is wonderful to fall asleep to...

Two scottish guys doing a ramones song on ukeleles.
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."

I had to go to work so missed most of the Olympic close. I'm sure Retro enjoyed the Pet Shop boys...
It was good to hear some of John Lennon's classics, and Ray Davies singing Waterloo Sunset...



Coincidentally, the first 45 I ever owned was "Lola"...

I missed it too.
Waterloo Sunset is a great song!

Thanks, Ben, The Kinks unfortunately, faded into obscurity despite their ground-breaking music, perhaps the first proto-metal from 1964.



That song is partly notable in musician circles for the session musicians variously rumoured to have played on the session, or not, including the late Jon Lord (later of Deep Purple) on piano and Jimmy Page on guitar (who has denied it):

Kinks brilliant.

A bit different and ahead of their time with 1965 bit of soft rock (crank up the volume to 11):

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.
SN I, 38.

Thanks Tilt. Another great "forgotten" 60's group. Beck and Clapton on guitars according to what I can glean from the internet. Sounds like a Beck solo...

How about the Yardbirds in Blow Up. Now Beck/Page...



Very funny performance by Beck, doing the Townsend thing with his amps and guitar while Page rocks on...

I didn't get to see them, but I did enjoy seeing this picture, complete with trademark pointy hats that made them look suspiciously like the Olympic stadium itself.

Beck was a bit more jazzy ten year or so later when I saw him with Jan Hammer, etc.

At this moment nothing, but I do sometimes listen to an ambient internet radio station I can recommend: Goove Salad
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

Remembering Simon, my brother-in-law, who passed away while staying with us in March, I recalled this song.

Dillinger

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)

A particularly unbuddhist song, appealing to hatred and violence:



Of my favorite band from old times: Virgin Steele. Here is a cool photo of them:
