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.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own 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!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

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.

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireas na daoine.
People live in one another’s shelter.

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.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

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

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:
