The Jewel In the Lotus

Meditation and prayer music takes the main stage on this edition of At Water’s Edge. We feature music of Vito Gregoli and Mala Ganguly; we’ll also hear a lovely, unique new release of Tibetan Buddhist prayers fused with both classical and electronic instruments, from Hsin-Jung Tsai with Vajia Master Sonam Norbu Rinpoche.

Vito Gregoli joins us live to talk about the music, and this program is broadcast from a beach in Southern California, as a field-test of RadHaus v2.0 (you may hear a few glitches and rough spots as a result–but isn’t it amazing that we have the technology to do this?)

Bring your prayer beads and your yoga mat and join us for “The Jewel in the Lotus”.

This unique and beautiful release employed double bass, piano, bamboo flute, harp, horn, percussion, and electronic sounds.

Each track is the mantra about Buddhas and Bodhisattva, such as Amitayus Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Bodhisattva of Great Compassion, and so on. The singer is a Tibetan Master Monk Sonam Norbu Rinpoche, singing mantras (in Tibetan) of each Buddha and Bodhisattva. When we listen to each track, we not only listen to the music and singing, but also the prayers and calling to Buddha. Through reciting the mantra and prayers, we receive the blessing from Buddha, practice the teaching of Buddhism, and purify our mind, heart, and behaviors.
