Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds
Show-On-G, produced by a Japanese Buddhist priest cum DJ, Gyosen Asakura, continues to blow my mind with it’s total commitment to electronica as a medium for Buddhist chant and transcendent audio/visual experience. I believe this piece is the Heart Sutra. Check out more at the Show-On-G website. Music is available at the Japanese iTunes site, but I don’t know if you can buy it in North America.
Show-On-G keeps reminding me that innovation will transmit Buddhism into the future; orthodoxy will leave it buried in the past. Read my full exposition on Buddhist Futurism in my first encounter with Show-On-G.
