TINA: Lotus Sutra / Purity of Mind

The meaning of the Lotus Sutra is ‘I devote my life to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra’.

It is the royal sutra of Nichiren Buddhism in Japan (1253). Coming from India to China and then to Japan, the prayer was translated from the Sanskrit word ‘Saddharma-pundarikasutra’ first into classical Chinese as ‘Miao-fa Lien-hua Ching’ and then into an ancient form of Japanese as ‘Myoho Renge Kyo’.

The word ‘Nam’ derives from the Sanskrit ‘names’ and means ‘devotion’. It is placed before the name of all deities when worshipping them.

‘Myo’ is the name given to the mystic nature of life and ‘Ho’ to its manifestation.

‘Renge’ means lotus flower. The beautiful and undefiled Lotus blooms in a muddy swamp with all the obstacles against it. It symbolizes the emergence of our Buddha nature from the everyday problems and desires of ordinary life. ‘Renge’ stands also for the simultaneity of cause and effect, because the lotus puts forth its flower and seedpod at the same time.

‘Kyo’ literally means sutra, the voice and teaching of the Buddha.
It also means sound rhythm or vibration and therefore it might be interpreted to indicate the practice of chanting. Since everything in the universe is connected through sound waves, ‘Kyo » refer to the life activity of universal phenomena and indicates that everything is a manifestation of the Mystic Law.

‘Myoho-Renge-Kyo’ is the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra. An explanation can help you understand, but the Sutra can only be fully appreciated through chanting it.

TINA:

‘However you must do it, to truly understand. When you say ‘Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo’ it will slowly remove all of the bad decisions you have ever made. The more you repeat the words the more you make your life clearer. The more you chant it the closer you get to your true nature. Your true nature is the right way of thinking and the right way of acting. The longer you go on this path, the more you avoid making wrong decisions. The Lotus Sutra helps me in my daily life. It is indeed mystical! And my life has proven this!’

Beyond IV: Uniting Cultures

beyond music uniting cultures tina turner regula curti 2017

Teach Us Again Tina! Exciting news for all the Beyond fans out there! A very nice sneak peek video from the recording of the upcoming Beyond album has emerged earlier on Youtube. And guess what! Parts of the music from the album have been recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra at the legendary London’s Abbey Road Studio where Tina recorded her classic hit Let’s Stay Together among others!

What do we know so far? The new Beyond album, ‘Music For Peace’ will feature Buddhist nun singing for freedom, Ani Choying Drolma as well as Jewish Sephardic singer Mor Karbasi. The great Regula Curti, the creator of the Beyond albums will once again unite her voice with the mesmerizing  Sawani Shende. Tibetan singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay however won’t be featured on the new album,  currently promoting her ‘Day Tomorrow’ album.

Also some news on the production side!  Kareem Roustom,  an Emmy nominated composer who has composed music for film, television, the concert hall and album projects will compose music for the album. Steeped in the musical traditions of the Near East and trained in Western concert music and Jazz, Syrian-born Kareem Roustom is a musically bilingual composer who has collaborated with a wide variety of artists.

This all sound very promising of course and we can’t wait to hear more from the upcoming Beyond IV: Uniting Culture and let’s not hide it, so we can delight us from the hypnotic voice of Tina once more!
We send Peace & Light to everyone involved in the project!

Mother Within (Heavenly Home)

“Sometimes I am exhausted and driven Lord,
Sometimes I don’t know where to go
My Mother, and Father, don’t own me
So I’ll try to too make Heaven
My Home”

By Ben – Today marks the anniversary of the release last year, of the third album of the so far Beyond trilogy “Beyond, Love Within“. With Tina’s participation on a few songs, the result was once again excellent and haunting; Bringing back her gospel roots while mixing it with her buddhist faith, a challenge for Turner who add another feather in her cap in World Music thanks to the creativity of good friend Regula Curti and the work of Swiss music producer Roland Frei.

Today, we focus once again on ‘Love Within’ but with a new and special upload! The “Heavenly Home” mix version of “Mother Within’ that was not included in the album. A shorter and bit more up-tempo version of the song to put it in a nutshell!

And for the occasion and for all your delight, a new video for the song created by Ben! Enjoy!

Once again, Tina is making news with small video apparitions from her Swiss Mansion and in local newspaper:

A new video emerged today on Beyond Fb page of Tina giving thanks for receiving the prestigious TARA Awards in Bangkok. Very short but funny and of course always nice to see the Queen.

According to this Swiss Newspaper, Tina is donating Christmas lights for her street in Küsnacht. About 250.000 swiss francs  but the city has to vote about accepting it or not!

And finally, a few weeks ago, Tina appeared on German tv to congratulate singer Udo Jurgens on his 80th birthday! Here’s the video thanks to Anja!
