    New Treeleaf Records April 1st Release: Take Me Home, Karma Roads


    Dear All,

    Well, it is the start of Spring, the traditional season for new record drops in Buddhism, so inspired by Beyonce's recent foray into country music, Cowboy Carter (LINK) ...


    ... this monk got drunk and, with the help of our talented Zen & Zydeco Ensemble, recorded our first C&W album ...



    Country Cohen & The Treeleaf Texans Band:

    Even Zen Monks Get the Blues ...

    WITH SPECIAL GUEST, Bion-cé








    Here's a small taste, Take Me Home, Karma Roads ...



    Buddhist Heaven, West of Llasa
    Himalaya Mountains, Ganjis River
    Dark and dusty, temples in the sky.
    Musty taste of yack butter, brings tears to my eye.

    [Chorus]
    Old silk road, take me home
    To the Pure Land where I belong
    West of Llassa, Tibetan mama
    Take me home, Karma roads

    I hear the bell in the morning hours, Zazen calls me
    The Sutras remind me Buddhahood's far away
    Prostrating down the road, I get a feeling
    That I should have been enlightened yesterday, yesterday

    Take me home, Old Silk road
    Take me home, Karma road

    Order in the next 24 hours, and we will throw in this genuine, imitation leather bound ...

    BUddhAS Love the USA

    Sorry Foreigners


    Buddhist Bible



    ... a $60 Value ...
    featuring, for the first time side-by-side, the Sacred Lotus Sutra &
    Even More Sacred American Declaration of Independence
    (sorry, we forgot the Constitution) ...

    New Treeleaf Records Release: Take Me Home, Karma Roads

    It was magically fantastic to be a part of this album. I was honored to perform our song “Non-Partition”.
    A taste of the lyrics:

    “Buddha roll up the Non-Partition please
    I don’t need you seeing Bion-cé hurt his knees
    Took 45 minutes till they rang that bell
    I ain’t even gon’ make it through zazen
    Now my robes are all sweaty and my forehead wet
    My back is hurting, no samadhi yet
    Took 45 minutes, till they rang the bell
    Think tomorrow I will do some more zazen”

    Thank you for the invitation to be a part of this record

    Gassho
    Sat and lah

    You might also appreciate these, Michael, being new around these parts ... from a sample from past Aprils ...

    MAJOR TREELEAF ANNOUNCEMENT: Springing into Space

    Announcement from Jundo: NO MORE ZAZEN at TREELEAF! I'm Sick of It!
    https://www.treeleaf.org/forums/show...-Sick-of-It%21

    and of course ...

    KATZ!

    To mark the start of April, I thought I would answer some questions from the mail bag. One that I am asked about a lot is whether our family pets might benefit from practicing Buddhism and Zazen.

    ABSOLUTELY! They're sentient beings, too. Only, with paws.

    Kitties are nothing but cuddly fur balls of delusions and attachments. We must help our dogs find out for themselves whether they have Buddha-Nature or not. Even our hamsters and birdies can be freed from mental cages.

    So, get a little Dogen into your doggie, and tell him to "SIT!"

    I had some folks write asking where they can buy it, and complementing me on my singing style!

    I am sorry to say that this is the custom of the "April Fool" (or "April Fish"), apparently one of the few things that Americans, the Dutch and French, Armenians, Odessa Ukrainians and Iranians share in cultural common ...

    Alas, there is no actual song album ... although maybe Bion-ce is thinking about it for real?
