From their album Electric which debuted this week at #3 in the UK chart...

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

This short song is from a new critically acclaimed Hindi movie called "The Ship of Theseus": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMvNfytKRBQ



It has English subtitles.
-Samāhitam cittam yathābhutam pajānāti.

समाहितं चित्तं यथाभूतं पजानाती |

A concentrated mind sees things as they really are.

-Ujuko nāma so maggo, abhayā nāma sā disā.

उजुको नाम सो माग्गो, अभया नाम सा दिसा |

'Straight' is this path, fearlessness is its way.

Michael Franti's new album, "All People". Here's "I'm Alive" though "11:59" is one of my favorite tracks (not up yet).

Not listening to any music these days because I believe what the buddha taught.

If only you knew how rare the Buddha Dhamma was in this Samsara!

Dhamapada verse 182:

Kiccho manussapatilabho
kiccham maccana jivitam
kiccham saddhammassavanam
kiccho buddhanamuppado.

182. Hard is it to be born a man; hard is the life of mortals. Hard is it to gain the opportunity of hearing the Sublime Truth, and hard to encounter is the arising of the Buddhas.

Abhidhamma Chanting is music to my ears. It reminds me of my time in Chanmyay Yeikthā, Hmawbhi, where the local monastery used to broadcast the chanting over loud-speakers for days on end. I think they used to recite the entire Paṭṭhāna — the chanting at the link is just the introduction.

Bhante,

Isn't it permited for monks to listen to music if they are related to impermanence, for example, reminding of the eminence death? I think I saw that somewhere, but I'm not sure. Of course that the safest way is to not hear it at all, but still, I'm curious.

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

A soothing piece from the Indian flutist Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, called "Song of the River":
