SHARE YOUR WISDOM What favorite music lyric reminds you of a Buddhist teaching? The teachers have spoken. (See page 38.) Now it’s your turn. What truth should Buddhists be roaring about? Send your answer, photo, and location to email@example.com CULTURE • LIFE • PRACTICE Brother Ali’s “Us” is about interconnectedness and the need for loving-kindness, especially its last lines: “I started rhymin’ just to be somebody / I found out that I already was / Cause can’t nobody be free unless we’re all free / There’s no me and no you, it’s just us.” —Patrick Taylor, El Cerrito, California Van Morrison’s “Enlightenment”: “Chop wood, carry water / What’s the sound of one hand clapping? / Enlightenment / Don’t know what it is.” —Francesca Chaper, Pleasant Hill, California “Do you realize / That everyone you know / Someday will die?” —The Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize?” —submitted by both BC Capps (location unknown) and Natalie Wasmer of Brooklyn, New York When I was 19, I heard Jon Lucien sing “Creole Lady,” which included a herd of people chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. Here I am, forty years later, still practicing! Who would have thought a song could be the path? —Clarice Bailey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania The simplicity of “Don’t play the game of time / Things that happened in the past / Only happened in your mind,” from David Bowie’s “Fill Your Heart,” puts me in the mind of Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart, the book that really started me on this path. —Jim Kolmar, Austin, Texas Michael Stipe and R.E.M . could be elliptical and nonsensical, but when they wanted to reach teenagers with the message that life can bring us to our knees, they were straightforward as a traffic sign: “Everybody Hurts.” It’s the first noble truth. —Dan Olmsted, Falls Church, Virginia From Ray Charles’ “A Song for You”: “I love you in a place / where there’s no space or time.” —Michelle Nevarr, Crozet, Virginia No music lyric can compete with a jazz trumpet solo by Louis Armstrong. The sound of Pops blowing reflects pure joy and mindfully living in the present moment. He was a bodhisattva who spread happiness throughout his life and today through his records. —Brian R. Sheridan, Erie, Pennsylvania The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows.” Even the title urges us to stay in the present. —Skipper Kripitz, Key West, Florida LION’S ROAR | MARCH 2016 29
