16_Track_16.mp3THE SUNRISE COMES1341 viewsAh! Blessed Lord!
Oh! High Deliverer!
I take my refuge in Thy name and Order,
I take my refuge in Thy Law.

The Dew is on the Lotus!
Rise, Great Sun!
And lift my leaf and mix me with the wave,
The Sunrise comes!
The Dewdrop slips into the shining Sea!

26_Track_26.mp3SONG OF THE PILGRIM1314 viewsNo sentient life in all the worlds,
Will ever cease to be,
Unending all as Thou and I,
Though forms change constantly,
Then life imprisoned in the earth,
May bloom as lovely flower,
So all evolve a fairer birth,

CHORUS:
Remembering always “Buddha Thou art”
The path will lighter grow,
The Buddha seed within our heart,
Will guide to those who know.

On through the endless eons of time,
Through forms from stone to man,
All beings to perfection climb,
Such is the faultless plan.
Perfected man the masters are,
And we shall also climb,
To starry heights in worlds afar,
And know the Truth sublime.

23_Track_23.mp3THE BLESSED REFUGES1285 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.

22_Track_22.mp3HIS LOVE LIT IMAGE1266 views(Tune: Oh, How Lovely Is the Evening)
So sublime his lovelit image,
Lovelit image,
Stately like a snow-capped mountain,
Snow-capped Mountain,
Sadhu, Sadhu, Sadhu.

21_Track_21.mp3MORTAL AND IMMORTAL1240 viewsHow sweetly bloom the cherry tree
Beneath the April sky!
But soon, too soon, their brightness wanes.
For they must fade and die;
And all their petals bright
Soon on the ground we find,
For while the world doth sleep
There comes the midnight wind.

So is the heart that seeks for peace
Within this world of strife,
For many are man’s woes below
In this, our mortal life,
And when all seems delight,

And hours of bliss we find,
Through our frail trees of life
There blows the midnight wind.

Tis true that mortal life is sad
And quickly passes by;
But still abides that ancient gleam
Of Truth that cannot die;
For when self’s flower is dead,
Its petals blown away,
We’ll see the glorious light
Of Truth’s eternal day.

18_Track_18.mp3TRUTH WITHIN YOU1218 viewsCome my brothers get together,
Sing the praise of your Lord,
He bath found the cure of sadness,
Gladly hearken to His word.

He bath taught the Law triumphant,
And this law shall set you free,
In His universal Sangha,
Ye shall find true liberty.

One are you with all that liveth,
Race and caste no more shell bind,
Brotherhood without distinction,
In the Buddha’s Greed you’ll find.

Mediate upon His Dharma,
In your lives these teachings show,
That the nations all around you,
May the Buddha’s greatness know.

Cultivate the Truth within you,
It will bring you joy and peace,
And the strife that are around you,
From them you shell find release.

Realise your Buddha nature,
And Nirvana you shall see,
In its tranquil peace undying,
You shall live eternally.

19_Track_19.mp3THE FLOWER OF MANKIND1216 viewsRohini rippled its water
Tinged with the moonlit tide,
Mountainous high sumeru
Gazed on with wondering pride.

Planets in their starry orbits
Stopped for a while in pace,
Gods in their shaken heavens
Down to the earth they race.

Birds in their flaming feathers,
Beasts in their vest of Gold,
Fish on the water’s surface
Make themselves dare be bold.

Skies grey have lost their darkness,
Silver’s moon shines in state,
Lotuses open in glory,
Honouring Gautama great!

He’s sunder’s life’s big secret,
He’s measur’d life’s big dawn,
He knows the way and watchword,
Flower of Mankind is born!

25_Track_25.mp3FARE-YE-WELL1157 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)
