28_Track_28.mp3ANGULIMALA2048 views“Stop thee! Oh saffron princely monk,
“who hastens on like falling rain,
“ I want a finger from thy hand
“To finish off my bloody chain.”

“I do not run, you run instead
“please stop awhile and follow me,
“Angulimal, I ‘m not content,
“to know that thou are not yet free”

“please throw that bloody chain aside,
“there is a better, nobler way,
“To live thy life and reach that truth,
“Angulimala, for you to-day.”

And hours want by the Indian time,
While Buddha’s sinless way he heard,
And sinner changed to blessed saint,
And preach’d he out the hollowed word.

11_Track_11.mp3THOUGHTS1860 viewsI fold my palms to worship Him,
And meditate thro’s love,
I place the blossoms one by one,
And lift my eyes above.

I see Samsara‘s mighty vast
And sorrow’s yearning fate,
But thro’s the law the Dharma’s taught
I sense a pathway great;

“Oh may that Noble Eightfold way
Be sense by you and me,
For on this Holy Wesak Day,
‘Tis my true gift to thee!”

27_Track_27.mp3SELF RELIANCE1632 viewsBy ourselves is evil done,
By ourselves we pain endure,
By ourselves we cease from wrong,
By ourselves become we pure.

No one saves us but ourselves,
No one can and no one may,
We ourselves must walk the Path,
Buddha’s merely show the way.

15_Track_15.mp3CHILDREN OF THE BUDDHA1510 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 DOXOLOGY1449 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 ACTION1399 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.

12_Track_12.mp3LET”S SING THE PRAISES1396 viewsSing gladly boys and maidens,
Your hymn of praise today,
‘Tis right that children’s voices,
Should blend in sweetest lay.
O praise the Holy Teacher,
Who found the root of pain,
And by his life Triumphant,
The power of self has slain,
The power of self has slain.

Come sing, dear boys and maidens,
Your hymn to Buddha Lord,
It was for all His children,
His wisdom He outpoured.
Sing praises of the Master,
Who found the Holy way,

Which we will safely follow,
To everlasting day,
To everlasting day.

And when we sing His praises,
Remember we strive,
By Holy Word and Action,
To keep His Faith alive.
O let us try to follow,
The Holy Path He found,
With love and with compassion,
All forms of live surround,
All forms of Life surround.

17_Track_17.mp3NIRVANA’S ENDLESS DAY1374 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.

20_Track_20.mp3WESAK DAWN1367 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!

24_Track_24.mp3THE LAW OF KARMA1362 viewsWhat e’er ye sow that shall ye reap,
Such is the Law Divine,
Think not that thou can’st e’er escape,
The Karma which is thine.

The present is the true result,
Of actions all our own,
The sower always reaps the fruits,
Of seeds which he has sown.

The Law is ever just and true
And all must surely bear,
The strict result of every act
For none the Law can spare.

Weep not for what is past and gone,
For it cannot return,
This is the teaching Buddha gave
For all His sons to learn.

Do not despair, the future still
Is thine to mar or make;
Sow then today good seeds and pure,
And reap their harvest great.

The goal divine still shines afar
All may this goal attain,
When they have learned good seeds to sow
And things of self have slain.
