By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

The music is pretty much in the style of a lot of Asian Buddhist pop, I imagine many Tibetans would like it. Not too bad I think. :twothumbsup: But the video is a bit cheesy. :tongue: Not that my opinion matters. :)
Best wishes

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

The words, the melody and the context is a whole ... and the body mudras too

I met Jan last year at Merigar. He's a nice guy and genuinely inspired by the teachings he's received.
The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

Adriano Clemente taught very precisely how to sing it in 2010, it was webcasted. I think we never really sing it like that. But then that way was more related to the vajra dance, where everything has to be more precise. Below is the fast version from that webcast (you can go faster still).

and there is a precise tempo, wether slow () or fast () ... it is not supposed to be sung otherwise.

I'm possibly rigid ... I react spontaneously. The real question is, is my spontaneity pure enough :smile:
