Tina Turner – Lotus Sutra / Purity of Mind (2H Meditation)

Video information

The meaning of the Lotus Sutra is ‘I devote my life to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra’.

It is the royal sutra of Nichiren Buddhism in Japan (1253). Coming from India to China and then to Japan, the prayer was translated from the Sanskrit word ‘Saddharma-pundarikasutra » first into classical Chinese as ‘Miao-fa Lien-hua Ching’ and then into an ancient form of Japanese as ‘Myoho Renge Kyo’.

The word ‘Nam’ derives from the Sanskrit ‘names’ and means ‘devotion’. It is placed before the name of all deities when worshipping them.

‘Myo’ is the name given to the mystic nature of life and ‘Ho’ to its manifestation.

‘Renge’ means lotus flower. The beautiful and undefiled Lotus blooms in a muddy swamp with all the obstacles against it. It symbolizes the emergence of our Buddha nature from the everyday problems and desires of ordinary life. ‘Renge’ stands also for the simultaneity of cause and effect, because the lotus puts forth its flower and seedpod at the same time.

‘Kyo’ literally means sutra, the voice and teaching of the Buddha.
It also means sound rhythm or vibration and therefore it might be interpreted to indicate the practice of chanting. Since everything in the universe is connected through sound waves, ‘Kyo » refer to the life activity of universal phenomena and indicates that everything is a manifestation of the Mystic Law.

‘Myoho-Renge-Kyo’ is the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra. An explanation can help you understand, but the Sutra can only be fully appreciated through chanting it.

TINA: ‘However you must do it, to truly understand. When you say ‘Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo’ it will slowly remove all of the bad decisions you have ever made. The more you repeat the words the more you make you make your life clearer. The more you chant it the closer you get to your true nature. Your true nature is the right way of thinking and the right way of acting. The longer you go on this path, the more you avoid making wrong decisions. The Lotus Sutra helps me in my daily life. It is indeed mystical! And my life has proven this!’

Sun will shine again – Michelle Williams (with lyrics)

The situation don’t look good
I know you’d change it if you could
The sun will shine again
The trouble’s all in your mind
Don’t run away, give it time
The sun will shine again

We all have times when we cry
When the healing flows from our eyes
But after the pouring rain
We know that the sun will shine again

The sun will shine again
This is not the way it will end
The sun will shine again
The night will move away
And joy will come, rest and stay
The sun will shine again

There’s still some ray of hope
Cause God is in control
Hold your head up my friend
I’m tellin you the sun will shine again

The sun will shine again. (ooh)
This is not the way it will end
The sun will shine again. (ooh)
The night will move away, (night will move away)
And joy will come, rest and stay
The sun will shine again

Oooh
Keep the faith, don’t give up and don’t give in

The sun will shine again
This is not the way it will end
The sun will shine again
The night will move away
And joy will come, rest and stay
The sun will shine again

The sun will shine again
This is not the way it will end
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
So don’t worry, it’s going to be okay. Yes it Will
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
Just believe it, believe
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
So hold your head up. Don’t give up and don’t give in
The sun will shine again
It might take a little while, but…….
This is not the way (not the way), it will end
The sun will shine again
The sun will shine again
Oooh
The sun will shine again………Yeah!

Richard Clayderman – Ballade Pour Adeline

It all came back to me when I saw Gado Gado in a food menu just now.

The food that we ate in Indonesia.

The music by Richard Clayderman that we heard while staying there.

Such sweet, poignant, wonderful memories.

 

Born free (Lyrics)

Born free, soundtrack of the same name’s film, sung by Matt Monro

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
Live free and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star
Stay free where no walls divide you
You’re free as the roaring tide
So there’s no need to hide
Born free and life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free
Stay free where no walls divide you
You’re free as the roaring tide
So there’s no need to hide
Born free and life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free
