Psychedelic Buddhist Dharani on Electric Guitar

Postby Indrajala » Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:39 pm

This afternoon we got creative and made a video. My friend Ven. Nakamura Gyomyo is innovative and likes to recite texts with unorthodox instruments like an electric guitar. So we made this video of his rendition of the dharani found in Chapter 26 of the Lotus Sutra. He called it psychedelic, so I made it visually psychedelic as well.

I really liked this one:

"If the Buddha-Nature is seen, there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing."
(Nirvana Sutra, T12n374p521b3; tr. Yamamoto)

"Neither cultivation nor seated meditation — this is the pure Chan of Tathagata."
(Mazu Daoyi, X1321p3b23; tr. Jinhua Jia)

"With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
The six paramitas and myriad means are complete within that essence."

(Yongjia Xuanjue, T2014p395c14; tr. from "The Sword of Wisdom")

Here's the other one we made. Namu Myoho Renge Kyo (from Lotus Sutra) on Electric guitar:

Unorthodox, but this is far more appealing to modern people than hitting a wooden fish.
