.Dear friends,


Here is a draft list of songs for our upcoming Chant for Peace (4-5pm,, January 8), incorporating suggestions from folks who've responded:

Namo Valo Kiteshvaraya--

 Avalokiteshvara Chant--Plum Village Website, under Practice, Chanting From the Heart, Reciting Avolokiteshavara's Name 

Two Promises

 Two Promises

I vow to develop understanding

In order to live peacefully with people,

Animals, plants and minerals (3x)

Mmmmmmm..... Aaaaaaaah (3x)

I vow to develop my compassion

In order to protect the lives of

People, a animals, plants and minerals. (3x)

Mmmmmmm..... Aaaaaaaah (3x) 

Invocation of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas--on the Mountain CD.  (Let me know if you need a copy)

We are All One ( All Leaves of One Tree )--on You Tube:  Here's a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S52uRdzT8G8

We are all leaves of one tree (2x)

The time has come to live as one

We are all leaves of one tree.


We are all waves of one sea

We are all stars of one sky

We may only do 3 of the 4, but in my experience, it's good to have a few options and then go with the flow of the moment. Perhaps we can incoporate these songs into our practice time over the next month so as to be at home in them together. 

Any thoughts, wonders, questions? Please let me know.


Kri :)  and Ken :)
