Lions Roar : March 2010
SHAMBHALA SUN MArcH 2010 32 whole physical composition. you could be forty, but if you do this for one hundred days, you’d be back to the vital body of someone who is twenty-five to thirty. I just reached forty. For those who don’t know me, it’s hard to convince them of that. Peo- ple be checking me out. [laughter] Buddhism tries to emphasize right speech, so some Buddhists have a hard time with the cursing in rap. Can you explain why you’re not afraid of using explicit language? In one of the books I have on Buddhism, a student is talking to the master. The student is saying things like fart and shit, and the master condemns him for it. But later on, the master finds himself describing some- thing and in no other way could he describe it besides using foul words. Therefore, he got into the position of the student. Also, there is a story about Da Mo when he first went to Shaolin. He was meditat- ing when a monk walked by, saw mud, and said, “Don’t let the mud get on you. It’s dirty and will defile you.” But then Da Mo said, “yeah, but the lotus plants grow out of the mud. So, if mud can produce some- thing so beautiful, how can it be foul?” Curse words can be considered dirt. If the word gets the message through, then it’s not a negative word. Making the point clearer is what words are for. What have you found most personally ful- filling in your career? I appreciate the records I sell, because it helps my life. It helps my family, helps my Wu Tang family. But I feel more artistically fulfilled when kids come up and say they read my book. That hits me in the heart. so the fulfillment is about bringing something more meaningful to the next generation? yeah. People say that with your music, you can change the world. And I agree with them on that, but we really get into the bone marrow of somebody by showing them the proper path. Helping them make that right decision. Helping them sur- vive conflict. That’s a blessing. And that is something I would love to be a part of. ♦ march 11 – march 14 Lucid Dreaming and Dream Yoga B.
