Postby vinodh » Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:19 am

I know there are several pop versions of Heart Sutra floating around.

This one sounded cool !

yo dharmaṁ paśyati, sa buddhaṁ paśyati

One who sees the Dharma, sees the Buddha
śālistamba sūtra

na pudgalo na ca skandhā buddho jñānamanāsravam
sadāśāntiṁ vibhāvitvā gacchāmi śaraṇaṁ hyaham

Neither a person nor the aggregates, the Buddha, is knowledge free from [evil] outflows
Clearly perceiving [him] to be eternally serene, I go for refuge [in him]
saddharma-laṅkāvatāra-sūtra

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."

The original album of the track is "Sound of Peace" (2013).

But Ironically, I encountered the track in the compilation album "Sex and the Chill: Sexy Lounge Tunes for Your Sensual Moments" :thinking:

I am not sure why the compiler thought the Heart sutra would be helpful in having sex :shrug:

Also, Imee Ooi is divine. But I don't consider her pop.
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

As regards pronunciation, does anyone know if Imee Ooi is working with some particular version of the Heart Sutra? It sounds quite different from the saṁkṣiptamātṛkā one in the Mahāyāna-sūtra-saṁgrahaḥ ( part 1).
