Post by Pondera »

Songs that remind you of the Dhamma.





SteRo speaks as though he is pretending to give a lecture on General Relativity in Latin to an audience who speaks Japanese.

No. Not at all.

If you didn't care
What happened to me
And I didn't care for you

We would zig-zag our way
Through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain

Wondering which of the
Buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing
- Roger Waters

Oh! Look up the “Jeopardy” game show. The name of the host is “Alex Trebeck”. And “Sounds like Buddhism” could easily be a category on the game show.

Also. It’s like a quiz show. So it has questions (“answers” to be precise). And every answer has a dollar value. You have to listen to the answer and come up with the question.

So the phrase, “Sounds like Buddhism for $300, Alex” would be a “answer” a contestant might select.

My title is just a silly way of referencing the game show Jeopardy because the title sounds like a possible category in the game.

I hope that helps.
