22_Track_22.mp3HIS LOVE LIT IMAGE1274 views(Tune: Oh, How Lovely Is the Evening)
So sublime his lovelit image,
Lovelit image,
Stately like a snow-capped mountain,
Snow-capped Mountain,
Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

21_Track_21.mp3MORTAL AND IMMORTAL1245 viewsHow sweetly bloom the cherry tree
Beneath the April sky!
But soon, too soon, their brightness wanes.
For they must fade and die;
And all their petals bright
Soon on the ground we find,
For while the world doth sleep
There comes the midnight wind.

So is the heart that seeks for peace
Within this world of strife,
For many are man’s woes below
In this, our mortal life,
And when all seems delight,

And hours of bliss we find,
Through our frail trees of life
There blows the midnight wind.

Tis true that mortal life is sad
And quickly passes by;
But still abides that ancient gleam
Of Truth that cannot die;
For when self’s flower is dead,
Its petals blown away,
We’ll see the glorious light
Of Truth’s eternal day.

20_Track_20.mp3WESAK DAWN1360 viewsWesak dawn has paced in softly,
Tip-toed thro’s the moonlit night,
Breathed the flowers and incense smoking.
Laughed thro’ bars of purple light.

Bids you now to woken gently,
Lift your troubled eyes of sleep,
Tend’s ring thoughts of homage holy,
Cross Samsara’s ocean deep.

To the one who taught the Dharma,
Of the Noble Eightfold Way,
To the Buddha, dearest sister,
Lift your tender mind today!

19_Track_19.mp3THE FLOWER OF MANKIND1220 viewsRohini rippled its water
Tinged with the moonlit tide,
Mountainous high sumeru
Gazed on with wondering pride.

Planets in their starry orbits
Stopped for a while in pace,
Gods in their shaken heavens
Down to the earth they race.

Birds in their flaming feathers,
Beasts in their vest of Gold,
Fish on the water’s surface
Make themselves dare be bold.

Skies grey have lost their darkness,
Silver’s moon shines in state,
Lotuses open in glory,
Honouring Gautama great!

He’s sunder’s life’s big secret,
He’s measur’d life’s big dawn,
He knows the way and watchword,
Flower of Mankind is born!

18_Track_18.mp3TRUTH WITHIN YOU1222 viewsCome my brothers get together,
Sing the praise of your Lord,
He bath found the cure of sadness,
Gladly hearken to His word.

He bath taught the Law triumphant,
And this law shall set you free,
In His universal Sangha,
Ye shall find true liberty.

One are you with all that liveth,
Race and caste no more shell bind,
Brotherhood without distinction,
In the Buddha’s Greed you’ll find.

Mediate upon His Dharma,
In your lives these teachings show,
That the nations all around you,
May the Buddha’s greatness know.

Cultivate the Truth within you,
It will bring you joy and peace,
And the strife that are around you,
From them you shell find release.

Realise your Buddha nature,
And Nirvana you shall see,
In its tranquil peace undying,
You shall live eternally.

17_Track_17.mp3NIRVANA’S ENDLESS DAY1364 viewsLong have we sought for Truth’s Bright Light,
Long have we wondered in the night?
Lord Buddha hath found the holy way
That leads from night to Endless Day.

When shall we find the road to peace,
When earthly strife and hatred cease?
O weary soul that peace profound,
To Buddha’s Holy Law is found,

Where shall we learn that Law sublime,
Which leads us on the peace divine?
To Buddha’s Holy Law we turn,
The path of Truth and Peace to learn.

Why must we wonder many a year,
In pain and misery and fear?
The Eightfold Path of wondrous wealth,
Is hidden by the love of self.

And must we prey that we may find,
The strength to break the chains that bind?
By each one must the race be run,
And not by prayer is freedom won.

Whence comes the suffering of this life,
How can we end our state of strife?
By Buddha’s Law is justice known,
For each must reap what each has sown.

With love that never more shall wane,
We’ll praise Lord Buddha’s holy name,
And in the Dharma’s Noble way,
We’ll reach Nirvana’s endless Day.

16_Track_16.mp3THE SUNRISE COMES1348 viewsAh! Blessed Lord!
Oh! High Deliverer!
I take my refuge in Thy name and Order,
I take my refuge in Thy Law.

The Dew is on the Lotus!
Rise, Great Sun!
And lift my leaf and mix me with the wave,
The Sunrise comes!
The Dewdrop slips into the shining Sea!

15_Track_15.mp3CHILDREN OF THE BUDDHA1506 viewsChildren of the Buddha,
Proudly now we stand,
Raising high His standard,
In this eastern land,
Buddha’s teaching spreadeth,
Universal peace,
Where His name is honoured,
Hate and strive shall cease.

Children of the Buddha,
We must strive to show,
Truth and love and kindness,
Where sover we go,
Purity, obedience,
Faith and courage strong,
These shall light our journey,
As we march along.

As we climb life’s mountain,
Clouds will disappear,
Buddha’s love surrounding
All who persevere,
Grief and pain departing,
Ignorance will ceased,
On our hearts descending,
Blest Nirvana’s peace.

14_Track_14.mp3BUDDHIST DOXOLOGY1438 viewsBright shineth the sun in his splendor by day,
And bright the moon’s radiance by night;
Bright shineth the hero in battle array,
And the sage in his thought shineth bright.
But by day and by night, none so glorious and bright.
As Lord Buddha, the Source of all Spiritual Light;
But by day and by night, none so glorious and bright
As Lord Buddha, the Source of all Spiritual Light.

13_Track_13.mp3RIGHT ACTION1393 viewsFirm in our purpose we have act,
Our feet in Wisdom’s Way;
Nor shall the transient things of earth,
Our resolution sway.

We spurn the lure of fame or gold,
The lust for things of sense;
And find purity and peace,
Our ample recompense.

Unselfish love to all that live,
Our lives shall manifest;
In thought, in word, in action show,
Its inspiration blest.

Though steep and toilsome be the path,
We shall but strive the more;
Nirvana’s holy realm to gain,
And peace forevermore.
