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

I just finished reading Anathem, by Neal Stephenson. It is speculative science fiction, mostly depicting individuals who live in monasteries for scientific & philosophical research who end up responding to a world crisis, written in first-person perspective.

In the book, sometimes scientific proofs and philosophical points are put to music, something akin to a splice of Gregorian and Buddhist chanting. The link below was created with this in mind, and forms something of a supplement to the book. While it isn't great music on the face of things, I appreciate supportive world-building such as this - at ~930 pages, it was a thoroughly thought-provoking read; the plot was sketched out by the author when he wrote an article which briefly covered the history of metaphysics.

So, here you go: music from a book.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

That reminds me of something I read many years ago ... possibly Hermann Hesse's Glass Bead Game? Anyone else got any ideas?

Your linked music is sort of sub-Philip Glass ... try Kundun for the real thing:

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta
