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:

"There is no such thing as the real mind. Ridding yourself of delusion: that's the real mind."
(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

(Nanyue Mingzan: Enjoying the Way, tr. Jeff Shore; T51n2076, p461b24-26)

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.
