It's the ambient hour.



Not twice, not three times, not once,

Nice. I've seen videos of some of the shows that they did. It almost overload when those three are together.

This is the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. It's worth to listen to it in a good sound system. RIP, Monserrat Figueras.

"He turns his mind away from those phenomena and, having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

The "music" is an aural assault so caustic that it could probably wake the dead.

Just mute your speakers and just watch...

Interesting. I didn't know that was how she died.

TEARS IN HEAVEN

Post by yawares » Sat May 26, 2012 3:37 pm

Dear Members,

Have you ever heard the sad song TEARS IN HEAVEN, by Eric Clapton???

March 20, 1991.... four year old Conor Clapton, died on impact after a fall from the 53rd-story window of his mother's friend's New York City apartment, landing on the roof of an adjacent four-story building. The main sitting room had windows along one side that went from floor to ceiling, and they could be tilted open for cleaning. On this morning the janitor was cleaning the windows and had temporarily left them open. Conor was racing about the apartment playing a game of hide-and-seek with his nanny, and while Lori was distracted by the janitor's warning her about the danger, he simply ran into the room and straight out the window. He then fell 49 floors before landing on the roof of an adjacent four-story building.


Clapton's grief was expressed in the song "Tears in Heaven''.
Written for his son

Hi yawares

Such a very sad song!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is so simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice.

Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing.

Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this-just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle.

- Ajahn Chah
