This is a good one:




Many years ago today something grew
Inside of your mother...
That thing was you
YOU
YOU YOU YOU YOU
Did she scream did she cry
Only those that are born are the ones that
Get to die
One more year closer to dying
Rotting organs ripping grinding
Biological discordance
Birthday equals self abhorrence
Years keep passing aging always
Mutate into vapid slugs
Doctor gives a new perscription
Bullet in a frak gun
One more year closer to dying
Plastic surgeons fuel the lying
You forget why you came in here
Your mind rots with every New Year
RSVP PLEASE
For the DETH of thee
You have little time
Happy Birthday
You're gonna die
Now you're old and full of hatred
Take a pill to masturbatred
Children point to you and scream
Because they will become that thing
One more year of further suffering
There's no point of frak bluffing
Open up your DETHDAY present
It's a box of frak nothing
RSVP PLEASE
For the DETH of thee
You have little time
And you're running out of life
Happy Birthday
Your Gonna DIE
DIE DIE
DETHDAY
BIRTHDAY
DETHDAY
DIE DIE
DETHDAY
BIRTHDAY
DETHDAY
RSVP PLEASE
For the DETH of thee
You have little time
And you're running out of life
Happy Birthday
You're gonna die

For me its ligeti's masterpiece "requiem". At least for the lower realms XD.



I wonder if he got the inspiration from tantric rituals XD.

Which one?
ཨོཾ་མ་ཧཱ་ཤུནྱ་ཏཱ་ཛྙཱ་ན་བཛྲ་སྭཱ་བྷཱ་བ་ཨཱཏྨ་ཀོ་྅ཧཾ༔

The thousands of lines of the Prajnaparamita can be summed up in the following two sentences:
1) One should become a Bodhisattva (or, Buddha-to-be), i.e. one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all beings.
2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a ‘being’, or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment.
To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect.

Just about every sone ever written is about samsara. Every Hollywood movie is a glorification of samsara.

Ah, yes. The music is nice though, don't you think?

This is true about songs and movies. There are lists of Dharma related movies, but just about every movie is somewhat Dharmic, with the sufferings of samsara or good winning over evil, morality winning over immorality, etc.

But just for fun . . .

1. First Noble Truth: Ozzy's Crazy Train
2. Second Noble Truth: (Martika's) Toy Soldiers
3. Third Noble Truth: Rolling Stones' You can't always get what you want
4. Fourth Noble Truth: John Lennon's Imagine

My Internet connection is too slow to allow me to play videos, so I don't know if this has already been submitted:

(can't get no) "Satisfaction" by The Stones.

dzogchungpa, The music is lovely but the visual message enmeshed with the Buddha is what crass consumerism is all about. Lets make a buck no matter what!

Here internet is running fast but I not. So no idea how to open a youtube, lacking that satisfaction.

Who better than BLUR to describe samsara?

Charmless man


lyric excerpts:
Educated the expensive way
He knows his claret from a beaujolais
I think he'd like to have been Ronnie Kray
But then nature didn't make him that way

He thinks his educated airs those family shares
Will protect him, that you will respect him
He moves in circles of friends who just pretend that they like him
He does the same to them and when you put it all together
There's the model of a charmless man
If this is a virtual sangha, do we achieve virtualization instead of realization?
