Featuring His Holiness The Dalai Lama with Toshinori Kondo and Bill Laswell
- HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
"Leave it to the Dalai Lama to break human existence down to three simple ideas - Life, Space and Death. Listeners will hear a lot more from His Holiness on this album as well, since it's comprised of pieces from the Dalai Lama's speeches wrapped in four ambient collages by Bill Laswell. ...with help from trumpeter Toshinori Kndo, who gives this album some of its emotional guideposts, Laswell creates something engaging, particularly when he adds his own dub grooves."

"I am often telling my artist friends that through my lectures, I may reach a few hundred, a few thousand or maximum a hundred thousand people. But artists through music, painting or sculpture whether it is a constructive message or destructive message can reach millions. Therefore, artists can promote peace, love, compassion and harmony, which everybody wants you see. Everybody really is praying or eager about that."
Nada the subtle and perennial sound; sound within silence, the healing silence of compassion and peace. Nada is the first stirring within, that heralds the beginning of the evolutionary process and from which radiates energy and matter - space, formless atmosphere, fire, water and earth...the basic constituents of the ever-evolving universe. Nada experienced by an unagitated mind leads to eternal bliss. Learn more about the World Festivals of Sacred Music.
