a blues for buddha

By stimulating and directing positive, joyous feelings we can change the essence of our inner patterns and experience. When positive or joyous feelings and attitudes pass through each organ and circulate throughout our whole system, our physical and chemical energies are transformed and balanced.

Tarthang Tulku (b. 1934) from Gesture of Balance

just want to give a shout out about the buddha, a documentary airing tomorrow on pbs. for those who miss out, no worries there is a dvd of the program available via the pbs store.

okay, that's it. back to trying to be productive! but, geez is it hard spring is singing soooooo damned loudly around here these days!

in 1988 the scottish group the silencers released the album a blues for buddha , unfortunately youtube doesn't have vid of the title song (but you might be able to hear it here). it does have a couple other tunes from the same albumn, today's song is the real mccoy, although it's no blues for buddha, I do think jimme o'neill looks a bit like a singing buddha?

All I know is, when I awake in a happy positive mood, it affects everyone around me in a positive way and I accomplish much more than when I awake grumpy, depressed or angry. Sounds like a no brainer but it's not always easy to convert my thoughts when they are negative. I really have to work at it. Meditation is one way. Repitition of the thought is another.

Thanks for the Buddha which is nicely balanced. And thanks for the song which is new to me.
