Research Question about Buddhism and Music

Postby rukkha » Sun Jan 19, 2014 12:51 am

Hi! I'm writing an essay that looks at Blues music through the lens of Buddhism. I remember hearing a story about a bhikkhu who heard a slave-woman singing about the woes of life and realized Fruits as a result. Can someone give me a reference? Where does this story occur and is there a place online I can read it?

rukkha,
Google accesstoinsight and you will find a place with a huge amount of Suttas and they have a search function....sometimes it seems the search function is not as slick as you might want and if "sing" doesn't get any hits you might try "singing" as well for example........although it seems they keep upgrading the search function so maybe by now it is better. Also b e aware that for many Sutta references you can choose between different translations (sometimes different translations can give an entirely different feel to the meaning of a sutta) through a link usually located just under the title and also there are explanatory notes and related links listed at the bottom.
