I first heard this song on Monday on the radio. I'm impressed with how well they perform it live - a real presence.

From Jim Bob's new album...

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)

Baghdad Nights - Naseer Shamma


A beautiful composition played on the Oud. I've been infatuated with microtonal music as of the past few months (especially played on instruments related to the lute) and stumbled upon this the other day.

These are two instrumentals that go deep and deep , questioning life as we know it . The composers and the musicians have sheer brilliance in bringing to life , the very purpose of our living .

Once our daughter , when she was 3-4 years old , panicked suddenly when this instrumental was being played in the background , pleading to have it stopped , mentioning that it was making her feel of death and parting . We were surprised that such little years , could feel as much.

The Blade Runner is also very searching , though the video can distort the listening. But the footage has a meaning , since the sound track questions the violence of life , and the endless desire of more .........

2) The Blade runner End Titles by Vangelis

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.

How can anyone resist a clip that compares Leonard Cohen to the Pet Shop Boys?

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.



Hello Pedro,

Yes, The Buddha , The Dhamma and The Sangha , are so rare , that at times , we may fail to comprehend the rarity.

Not everyone likes to comprehend change , even though their feelings and moods keep turning like a cart wheel . May we all becomes links in improving ourselves , and sharing Dhamma far and wide .

Bhaujan Hitaye, Bhaujan Sukhaiye.........for the good of many , for the benefit many .

i happend to read this in the Manuals of Dhamma by Venerable Ledi Sayadaw

"Lord Buddha once addressed the gatherings of monks .

O Monks , should in the great ocean, there be a wooden cart wheel floating , and also a blind tortoise swimming elsewhere in the vastness of the great ocean. Would there be a time when this tortoise could yoke itself to the cart wheel ?

Yes , O Great One , the happening of this chance , though difficult , can happen owing to the vastness of time , given that the tortoise lives to such a time , and the cart wheel does not rot away .

Even so , O Monks , is this hidden truth ; a hundred times , a thousand times more difficult than the chance yoking of the tortoise and cart wheel, which pales miserably in comparison to the rare occurrence of a man finding himself back into the human world, after having gone into the four lower worlds after his death
. "

Hence , the " stumbling" and finding the pristine teachings of the Buddha , being inspired by the exhortation , and finally realizing and living such a life , is like the making of a jewel , that has no measures .........

may we all keep motivating ourselves and so many others .

This song by Billy Joel, is on my mind these days...looking not just at the political scene in my own country, but in our dealings with others, we are so much in need of truthfulness...

I have certain parts from the Nutcracker running about in my mind, if that counts, but otherwise I am listening to nothing but the sound of children and domestic hygienic machines.

I never played an instrument, but I find it funny when people who play the guitar, watch this video and say things like "Alright. Time to leave the guitar and go work as a garbage man."

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

Jesus! Marie, you always have some awesome thing to put in this thread. :smile:

By the way, if you're into fingerstyle guitarists, check this one out _ that's if you don't know him yet. He's british.

I can't find a single fault in this execution. Its timing is p-e-r-f-e-c-t. If you like this, also listen to "The Impossible 2.0"
