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.
"To know by thinking falls into the secondary. To know without thinking falls into the tertiary." (Yangshan Huiji, X1405p58b18-19; tr. JC Cleary: A Tune Beyond the Clouds, p 43)
"While teachers of the middle way, mind only, transcendent wisdom, mantra, and other schools may have their own assertions, the fulfillment of those intentions is the same. There is not a single thing that is not contained within mind." (Gampopa to Düsum Khyenpa, in "The First Karmapa", KTD Pub, p 254)
