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.
May the triple gem bless bless you, may you quickly realize the 4 noble truths in this Gautama Buddhas dispensation... Sādhu! Sādhu! Sādhu!

Abhidhamma Chanting is music to my ears. It reminds me of my time in Chanmyay Yeikthā, Hmawbhi, where the local monastery used to broadcast the chanting over loud-speakers for days on end. I think they used to recite the entire Paṭṭhāna — the chanting at the link is just the introduction.

Bhante,

Isn't it permited for monks to listen to music if they are related to impermanence, for example, reminding of the eminence death? I think I saw that somewhere, but I'm not sure. Of course that the safest way is to not hear it at all, but still, I'm curious.

"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.' " - Jhana Sutta

A soothing piece from the Indian flutist Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia, called "Song of the River":

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...

"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

"One discerns wrong view as wrong view, and right view as right view. This is one's right view." (MN 117)

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.
