Birth Song

Written by Andrew J Williams © 2010

After an extraordinary dream It came to be
The Queen had conceived And was with child

All rejoiced in anticipation
Of the coming royal birth
Peace and love reigned throughout the nation Heaven and Earth

So the Queen and attendants
Began their journey to her childhood home As was the way in days gone by

As they reached the gardens of Lumbini
Filled with flowers and singing birds
The moon was shining brightly, high in the sky

Knowing her time was near She said “I can go on no more, Lay me down by the lake,
To give birth by the shore”

All rejoiced in anticipation
As she leaned against a knowing tree The Prince was born in that moment Painlessly

Heavenly music filled the air
Heavenly flowers rained down upon the earth Rainbows appeared in the sky
Peace was felt throughout the land
The earth stood still with understanding
And nature smiled

Amazingly the child did stand Took seven steps
With each appeared a lotus flower

All rejoiced with realization This was no ordinary child As he so boldly proclaimed

This is my last birth
I am the foremost in this world I will lead and guide you
I am the highest
Now there is no rebirth for me I will teach the truth 

It seemed all of nature knew
The child born that day
Would be the man to show the way To set us free

So let us live with love and patience
And understanding in all relations
And as we reach out to each other Always remember the care of our mother Always remember the love of our mother We owe our life to our mother

Always respect love and care for our mother

 

 Siddharthas’s Song

Written by Andrew J Williams © 2010

As I walked in the gardens
Something fell from the sky
And on closer inspection
It seemed that something may have died

An arrow had pierced the wing of a bird
A swan so tender and mild
Oh beautiful one I shall tend to your wound I’m so glad that you’re still alive

I will care for you and I will comfort you
I will keep you warm at my side
I will nurture you nourish you and protect you Until once again you can fly

Soon you will be well and you will be strong You can live with your kind
But for now my friend let yourself heal
And have peace of mind

 

  Devadatta’s Song

Written by Andrew J Williams and Roger McLaughlan © 2010

page1image752

Hey Siddhartha, Tell me did you see A white swan
Fall down near here

Before I shot it
It belonged to nobody, My aim was true, Now it belongs to me

Hey Siddhartha
Give me back my swan, I’m Devadatta
I shot it down
Hey Siddhartha
Give me back my swan, I’m Devadatta
I shot it down
So give me back my swan

Hey Siddhartha, That bird is mine. As I stand here I tell no lie

You’re being weak I’m being strong It’s my prize, It’s my crown

Hey Siddhartha
Give me back my swan, I’m Devadatta
I shot it down
Hey Siddhartha
Give me back my swan, I’m Devadatta
I shot it down
So give me back my swan

Give me back my swan, Give me back my swan, I want my swan 

Siddhartha’s Song (Reprise)

Written by Andrew J Williams © 2010

Oh dear cousin, put down your weapon Let your anger subside

For it’s life that all beings treasure the most Love and respect is where friendships abide

All beings tremble at the thought of being harmed Knowing this, how can we harm them

Knowing that we all seek happiness Cultivate love for all

So the swan stays with the one who saved it Not with the one who tried to destroy it 

 

Everything

Written by Andrew J Williams © 2002

Everything is like a flicker of a lamp The life of a flower
A star at dawn
A dewdrop in the sun

Everything (Everything), Comes and goes
No space, no time
No thing knows Everything (Everything) Let it go

Don’t hang on to the past, No-one owns Anything

Everything is like the changing of the tides Lightning in a summer cloud
A bubble in a stream
A phantom and a dream

Thus shall we think of all this fleeting world 

 

In Good Company

Written by Andrew J Williams © 2002

Trying to put my mind at ease
And ready to please
But all these things that get me high Are only things just passing by
So why do I care for these things at all

So let this sweet life unveil
To reveal it’s many hidden tales How we came to be
Like this and that and you and me I’m sure that we’d all agree
Life is like an endless sea
Into which we set sail, together, free Oh, oh, oh, living in good company

I’ve had better days
And I should have better ways
And with all this time that’s passed us by I ask myself why
Why do we bother with this time at all 

We should let this sweet life unveil It will reveal so many hidden tales Of how we came to be
Like this and that and you and me I’m sure that we’d all agree

Life is like an endless sea
Into which we set sail, together, free Oh, oh, oh, living in good company Living in good company
You are good company

And so this sweet life unveils
To reveal it’s many hidden tales How we came to be
Like this and that and you and me I’m sure that we’d all agree
Life is like an endless sea
Into which we set sail, together, free Oh, oh, oh, living in good company Living in good company
You are good company

Đức Phật hay Đạo Phật, mặc nhiên đã đóng góp sự lành mạnh, và hiện hóa vào trong mọi tầng lớp xã hội loài người, và muôn loài một cách đích thực hơn bao giờ hết, cho dù từ ngàn xưa hay cả đến ngàn sau.

Dòng A Nô Ma sóng nhấp nhô bờ lau xanh. Nhìn làn nước biếc, Thích Ca ngài lòng vững bền. Thôi con hãy về để ta vui ánh Vàng. Ta đã quyết tìm Đạo sáng cứu chúng sanh. A Nô Ma vẫn còn nhớ ghi gương sáng ngời. Chúng ta giờ đây nguyện theo Đức từ bi.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
