Buddhist Music links inside

Postby padma norbu » Sun Nov 20, 2011 1:26 am

A few months back, I mentioned how it's a bummer there isn't anything like Buddhist reggae, just that jewish guy.

Well... found it:



Seems to be their only buddhist song, though.

here's another one from someone else



Don't like the imitative fast-singing style, though.

Anyone know of any other upbeat buddhist-friendly music? Doesn't have to be buddhist or reggae, but I'm just looking for mindless entertainment that isn't filling my subconscious with a bunch of negative crap or samsara-obsessed references, which pretty much rules out 99% of musics that contain lyrics.

Wow, I must be getting old because I actually like this, which is hard to believe.

Couple more I just found... remind me of Simon & Garfunkel, but without the negative tone:

Messengers of Dharma
http://sjbays.com/downloads/mod/

(several songs to download on this page)


The Wayfarers
http://www.buddhistelibrary.org/en/disp ... play_media

(you can listen or click download, then click the > (right) arrow to advance to the next song... there are 28 songs in all)

EDIT: Actually, here is an easier way to download the Wayfarers songs (you can't read the lyrics while you listen, but all the links are on one page) http://www.buddhanet.net/audio-songs.htm
