01_Track_1.mp3The Bodhisattva11422 viewsLet me a pure white lotus be
Unfolding in Samsara’s stream,
Let all the gloom of misery
Be gathered in my lotus dream;
Let each dew drop that studded lie
On each white radiant fold,
Reflect the mercy of the law
That turns death’s bliss to gold.

Let every wave that tumbles down,
Their curled slim of wrath, repair
To lotus roots of dusky brown,
In my compassion’s bounty share;
Let every sparks of vengeance rowed
Round lotus stalks entwine.
And greed and lies transformed by love
In lotus heart enshrine.

When each life drop has sped away
Across my pure white lily door
When I have drained all sorrow may
I speed to deck that lustless floor.
Let every petal softly fold,
In summer’s golden shine
Retreat to claim the splendid prize
Nirvana’s joy last Mine!

02_Track_2.mp3Climb the Path with Gladness4649 viewsClimb the Path with gladness,
In the field of life,
Vanquishing illusion,
Ignorance and strife.
Brotherhood and service,
Shall our motto be,
And the goal before us,
Truth and liberty.
We will teach Thy Dharma,
Wheresoe’re we go
Wisdom, Love, Compassion,
In our actions show.

We must stand together
Fighting side by side,
Truth is undivided
This must be our guide.
All divisions vanish
Where the Truth is known,
This the greatest lesson
By Lord Buddha shown.
Forward marching ever
In the Dharma’s might,
Till we lead the nations

03_Track_3.mp3ANTHEM OF UNITY3281 viewsIn unity we stand
In harmony we strive,
The Cause shall never end,
As long as we’re alive.
We’re one, we’re one.
Always, always.
We’re one always.
One Cause, one Cause enfolding us
Along Dharma’s way.

One cosmic brotherhood,
One purpose moulding us,
Bringing us all to good,
Kindling the Light in us.
Strive on, Strive on,
Heedfully, heedfully.
Strive on heedfully.
Along, along the Eightfold Way
To Nirvana’s day.

04_Track_4.mp3RIGHT THOUGHT2791 viewsRight thought will lead me on
To wisdom’s holy height,
And show to me the surest way,
To pass through sorrow’s night.

Right Thought will light me through
The shadows of this life;
“Twill ease my heart and peace assure,
And free my mind from strife.

Right Thought will be my guide
Across life’s troubled sea;
My pilot, compass, star and chart,
Right Thought shall ever be.

Right Thought will keep me on
The way to perfect peace,
And ferry to other shore,
Where all Illusions cease.

05_Track_5.mp3OH! SUFFERING WORLD2349 viewsOh! Suffering world.
You shall not come back again.
Oh! Suffering World,
When you’ve stifled desire’s flame.
Then there’ll be no tears of sorrow
In your eyes, my friend,
You’ll know the bliss of one
Who enters freedom land;
Oh! Suffering World,
You shall not come back again.

07_Track_7.mp3WHEEL OF LIFE2239 viewsHow high is the mountain,
How deep is the sea,
How long will man learn to live.
How blue is the ocean.
How green is the leaf.
How long will man learn to be free.

CHORUS:
For you shall not go
Round and round again
In the wheel of life;
And you shall not go
Down and down again,
With your fruitless strive.

How long is the night
To the sleepless one,
Waiting for the morn to come,
How long is the road.
To the weary one,
Carrying on the route that he can’t

(CHORUS and repeat verse 1)
08_Track_8.mp3
08_Track_8.mp3WHY1832 viewsWhy must they all lie?
Why must they deny?
The words that He had said,
And the Eightfold Way.
Why do they close their minds
And choose to be so blind?
Thro’s birth, and death and change,
Round they will go again.
CHORUS:
Round and round they’ll go again,
Round they’ll go again.
Down and down they’re burnt in flames,
Down they’ll go in pain.

Why do they deafen their ears?
Why do they not hear?
The words of love and peace,
From the Master’s seat.

09_Track_9.mp3THE BODHI TREE1885 viewsIn the forest dense and wild
Providing shade for fierce and mild,
Beloved by both man and child,
The Holy Bodhi Stands.

In the city’s sun-browned heart
Where the highways meet and part,
Beneath whose shade the sparrows dart
The Holy Bodhi stands.

Down the river’s fertile shore
Where young meet for Dhamma’s lore
Enshrined within a pilgrim door,
The Holy Bodhi stands.

Years by thousands have gone by
Since that Indian Prince did sigh,
And where became The Buddha high,
The Holiest Bodhi stands!

10_Track_10.mp3THE THREE SIGNS1936 viewsDukkha, Anicca, Anatta
The leaves are falling fast,
The reign of the rose is ended,
The sky is overcast.
The whole world is filled with sadness,
From city and Jungle rise;
The cry of life’s suffering children
The daylight slowly dies.

Our lord looked with love and pity
Upon every living being,
From the lowliest child of nature
To the mightiest crowned king.
For hatred, delusion, passion
Still claim and enslave us all,
And each alike on the wheel of change
Must suffer, and rise, and fall.

Dukka, Anicca, Anatta,
Tho’s every life knows pain;
He who faithfully walks the Path
Will not look for help in vain.
The law of the Tathagatha
Forever will light the way;
It is our moon to shine by night,
Our sun to illume the day.

In lord Buddha we take our refuge,
His Law of Good our guide,
To pilot us as we toss and drift
On being’s remorseless tide.

With the Dharma’s light to steer by
Some day we’ll fear rocks no more,
But, merit won, each will moor his barge,
On Nirvana’s changeless shore.
