23_Track_23.mp3THE BLESSED REFUGES1289 viewsO Blessed One! The greatest of mankind,
Thou Gracious Master, filled with love divine,
Gracious Thy life, so sweat, so great, so pure,
Thou mighty Light, Thou Blessed One as dear.

Lord, at Thy feet I seat myself to learn,
The wisdom of Thy Life and Law,
Plainly I see the Truth which Thou doest teach;
Sorrow and pain and self shall be no more.

Into my heart there comes a lasting peace,
Within my mind there glows a wondrous light.
All tears and sorrow, doubts and worries cease,
For Truth and joy Thy glorious Teaching brings.

I take my refuge in The Glorious Lord,
No other shelter shall I need,
I take my refuge in the Law and Sangha,
Which freedom bring and Light forevermore.

27_Track_27.mp3SELF RELIANCE1622 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.

11_Track_11.mp3THOUGHTS1849 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!”

28_Track_28.mp3ANGULIMALA2038 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.

08_Track_8.mp3WHY2513 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 TREE2589 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!

24_Track_24.mp3THE LAW OF KARMA1352 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.

17_Track_17.mp3NIRVANA’S ENDLESS DAY1360 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.

25_Track_25.mp3FARE-YE-WELL1160 viewsMy fond young wife, oh fare-ye-well,
I leave your side to come again,
A sage of sages, king of kings,
This holy hour tho’full of pain.

This palace vast is small to me,
I cannot breathe nor lie at rest,
The vaster world bids me to leave,
This vanity for what is best.

So fare thee well, my only son,
Reclining in the mother’s arms,
I go to build the realm of truth,
Hence leave I all with folded palms.

And mount my horse, and fly thro’s Time,
To conquer pain and birth and death,
To find a way to reach that bliss,
I leave behind this passing wealth!
(repeat the first verse)

13_Track_13.mp3RIGHT ACTION1389 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.
