    When you see what's in front of you
    Is it really there?
    You reach out and touch it, but
    Are you aware
    That things come and go
    But do they disappear?
    It's like riding on a bicycle that's out of control
    We get back on the cushion and we
    Go go go
    Forget about the body
    Forget about the mind
    Drop the issue and what do you find?

    Gotta sit up straight
    Shut your mouth
    Don't try to wonder what it's all about
    Don't you know that Buddha is in the house
    So put away the hammer
    Give a great big shout
    Take it off the cushion
    Take it in the Rain
    Take to the laundry
    Take it for the pain
    East West North or South
    Come on and let me hear you shout
    KATZ

    Day after day
    we sit right down
    We look at a wall
    and don't turn around
    Some days we might have a little frown
    But like a mountain
    We get down

    Hey Guys,

    The themes aside, I just love the music.

    Many other folks around composing Zennish tunes like this?

    Glad you liked it Jarrko. It just kind of came out like that. The original idea was to just have bass and drums. Like early Eighties style when Software was a myth.

    Thanks for the listens and the kind words gang. Don't forget to snag some t-shirts.

    I haven't run into any bands with a direct Zen or Buddhist influence during my forays into the online indie music world.

    John Cage and Phillip Glass turned up in a quick google search.

    Donovan released an album called Sutras a few years back. Never got around to checking it out.

    There is a breakbeat label called Electric Zen.
    Trance artist DJ Krush released an album called Zen.

    But I think in some cases the influence is the stereotypical puff. Relaxed, sparse, with an exotic overtone.

    I took out the KATZ at the end and just added a bit of rain sounds instead if you want to update your copy.

    Hello

    I think that music is the universal language. You are doing important job will.

    Don't have the album either (and still haven't seen the movie it's apparently on the soundtrack of, though I want to), but this song has become one of my favorites:

    "There Is An Ocean"
    by Donovan

    There is an ocean
    Of vast proportion
    And she flows
    Within ourselves

    To take dips daily
    We dive in gaily
    He knows
    Who goes within himself

    The abode of angels
    The mystical Promised Land
    The one and only Heaven, the God of man
    Is but the closing of an eyelid away

    There is a silence
    Of pure excellence
    And she flows
    Within ourselves

    To appreciate
    Re-deactivate
    He knows
    Who goes within himself

    The domain of devils
    The fearful land
    The one and only Hades, the Satan of man
    Is but the closing of an eyelid away

    All is as it was and evermore shall be
    Though they try to tell us it's not so
    Over all the earth there's nothing new to see
    Excepting every seed will newly grow

    Innocence in childhood false men misconstrue
    To be years of darkness spent in shade
    Denying childhood's vision of the God of love
    So that truth be turned about and untruth made
    And untruth made

    There is a reason
    For every season
    Of change
    Within ourselves

    To navigate
    We appreciate
    And know
    The flow within ourselves

    The deliverance from deluge
    The good dry land
    The one and only haven, the rock of man
    Is but the closing of an eyelid away

    There is a season
    There is an ocean
    There is a silence
