a couple of
other songs, this page has very little sheet music with words but
has additional words on the page in text/verse form. I reproduce them
here. They are close adaptations of words from Hakuin's Song of
Meditation, commented on by Osho in This Very Body the Buddha, and
begun famously on his birthday in 1977 with the words, "My beloved
ones, I love you." The words on the Song page are:
All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas.
Not knowing it is near, we seek it afar.
What a pity!
Dark path upon dark path treading.
The pureland paradise is not far.
The gate opens, straight runs the way.
Singing and dancing,
All is the way of truth.
What remains to be sought?
Nirvana is clear before us.
This very place the lotus paradise,
This very body the Buddha.
