Greetings,

I've been listening to the new Pet Shop Boys album, Elysium, of which these are my two favourite tracks...




Metta,

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)

One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

It's lost the endearing post-apocalyptic feel of JA's version in favour of generic early-70s US rock.

In order to redeem yourself, clap your hearers around this...



Metta,
Retro. :)


Sorry, Retro, I am with Ben on this. I loved this song and the whole album. Here is another songs from the album.

Maybe somebody like to listen to this
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

I'm no music expert, but this is truly beautiful. A vynil version of this went up to $6000 on ebay. It lasts 5 hours and if the 5 hours are as beautiful as the first 30 min, this is a true masterpiece.

And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

By any means necessary!
I used to listen to this band when I was a teenager and they still make these ridiculous "everything is burning, exploding and our long hair is flying in the wind" music videos! They're really good for a good laugh but I think they try to be pretty serious! :D
