Rocking Prajna Paramita Dharma Jams

The teachings of the Buddha mention music on many occasions. In the Amitabha Sutra it is written that heavenly singing mandara and chanting is heard all day and night as flowers softly rain down from the heavens. All kinds of birds produce beautiful and harmonious music throughout the day and night. Upon the blowing of a gentle breeze, the movements of jewel trees bring about a kind of wondrous music, as if thousands of gentle tunes are being played together in harmony. Upon hearing these melodious sounds, those present naturally become mindful of the Buddha, mindful of the Dharma, and mindful of the Sangha. In accordance, all Buddhas and bodhisattvas are very skilled in utilizing music to spread the Dharma and guide sentient beings to enlightenment. [from here]

Ok, whatever.  Even without the fancy pilphered intro I think this was just to awesome not to share…

as long as we are doin’ this I should include my favorite rapping monk…

and from my favorite Roshi in Black (Hat tip to Art of Dharma)

and lastly for my favorite Monk-stelid @bitterrootbadge (Bitterroot Badger’s Bozeman Buddhist Blog)

But one thing’s for certain
When it comes my time
I’ll leave this old world
With a satisfied mind

  1. “Wear a tall hat like a druid in the old days
    Wear a tall hat and a tattooed gown
    Ride a white swan like the people of the Beltane
    Wear your hair long, babe, you can`t go wrong”
    ~Marc Bolan a.k.a. T.REX, ‘Ride A White Swan’

  2. Sounds come and go, and their textures may change with time, but there’s always sounds coming and going and peace in the world continuing. It takes all kinds. And its all part of the Buddha-Dharma.

    Peace to you John,
