Dhammapada Songs






The Album

This collection of recordings is the first release from a continuing project.

The lyrics were adapted from English translations of the Dhammapada, a traditional collection of sayings attributed to the Buddha

The album can be listened to as either a collection of individual recordings, or as a suite with five parts (more ..).

I've been fortunate to have this opportunity to work on understanding and communicating some of the Buddha's wisdom. I hope that others will benefit as well.

The cover photo

The album cover photo is from an old book about Florida nature and fishing: The Book of the Tarpon, by A. W. Dimock, with photographs by Julian Dimock. Published 1911 in New York by Outing Publishing Company. A while back I had the good fortune to come across an inexpensive copy of the first edition.


The CD case

The CD case is designed to be cheap, protective and informative.
