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:

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.
