A Story Of Buddha

A Story Of Buddha

An old devotee of Lord Rama was close to his death. He heard of Buddha and wanted confirmation on God’s existence. Buddha, knowing the man was a devotee, said there was no God.

Later a devout atheist who dedicated many years to spreading the atheist message came to Buddha and asked if there was a God. Buddha, knowing that man was an atheist, said firmly that there was a God.

The Zen View Of Life

For Zen practitioners, life is transitory and insubstantial. There is no security and thinking otherwise is a waste of time. 

They also don’t believe in an afterlife. Reincarnation can be more accurately thought of as a constant rebirth, of death throughout life, and the continual coming and going of universal energy before and after death.

The Zen View Of The World

The word 'Zen' means emptiness or void. This is the basis of Zen — that all that exists is based on a dynamic emptiness. Which is also what quantum science says.

In this view, there is no difference between matter and energy. Look at anything closely enough and you will see that it is an event, not a thing. Furthermore, there is not a ‘multiplicity of events’. There is just one event, with multiple aspects, unfolding.

Johann Sebastian Bach: Early Life

  • Born in 1685 in Germany, Bach was in a dynasty of musicians, though his mother and father died before he turned ten.
  • Even as an orphan, he got into what he loved, starting with organ music as a court musician, composing for church services.
  • This added a flavour of the devotion and love in his music at an early age. He started compiling instrumental music in Cöthen, moving away from his earlier style and using a more diverse range of instruments.

Johann Sebastian Bach: The Finest Years

  • He composed gems like Christmas Oratorio and two great gospel compositions for Good Friday: St John and St Matthew.
  • Bach left incomplete a final collection called The Art of Fugue when he died in 1750.
