“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Ben, from the same album:

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 - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Thanks MP.
Some years ago I went to the beach where part of the Piano was filmed.

I love the soundtrack to the Piano nearly as much as I love the soundtrack to Koyaanisqatsi.

Here is one of my favourite tracks: Pruit Igoe without the distraction of Coppola's brilliant camerawork.

Very good! It reminds me of "Nixon in China" by John Adams:

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.'

Ben, I almost looked for that song to post yesterday. I have it on a cd, but it has the name of "The Promise" from the 1st Pure Moods cd. Here it is again from youtube with that title. Believe it or not, i have never seen The Piano.

I am listening to the Dhammacakkhapavattaba sutta

I have 3 versions one by Amaravati, WPN, & Abhiyagiri my fave is by Amaravati but different to this one faster, although the Abhiyagiri version is better quality.

You can see it transcribed here using Uncial script here (minus the gods section due to lack of parchment of the same colour at the time)

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

a very strange choice for now, but the music is lovely and was in a box with other gifts, a Kuan Yin statue and incense way back in 1989.

Cittasanto, maybe a mp3 is more portable: http://www.youtube-mp3.org/#v=LEr2eoWQk0E

Very useful service for downloading dhamma talks from youtube as well :)

was just discussing with someone if silence is a form of lying. This song came to mind. Great little dance number.
