Country where Tina Turner lives.

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!’

It’s a picture we would like to see more often: TINA in a recording studio! Taken last December in Zurich, Tina looks radiant and appears very concentrated on her message! But don’t get your hopes too high, Miss Tina isn’t recording a new rock album, she is just putting her voice again on a few tracks for the upcoming Beyond album due to be released later this year. Apart from that, it’s been very quiet lately, TINA, The Musical is still in development and the first newsletter should arrive soon! Until then here’s a couple of new photos posted by the musical team on social networks.

A very nice and candide shot of Tina Turner (76) emerged today on Instagram! Taken earlier today in the streets of Zurich, it seems that the Rock legend graciously agreed to pose in front of a young admirer! Not very Swiss protocole but let’s admit it, it must have taken some guts and the guy got lucky!

Anyway, always nice to see Miss Turner unexpectedly, looking happy & healthy!

“Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keeps on burning”

The only certainty in life is that nothing is certain. Everything changes, nothing stays the same.

The feeling that everything changes and nothing stays the same.

Tina Turner - Swiss 2014 Birthday Zurich
So it is officially confirmed: Tina Turner is sponsoring her home community in Küsnacht with Christmas lights.The rock legend ensures that Christmas spirit comes to the Lakes. Together with representatives of the local council Tina Turner has examined various options and finally chosen the lighting “Golden Twig” (golden branch).  “As a citizen of Küsnacht Tina Turner is pleased to contribute to the townscape in this way”.
The donation remains secret. Tina Turner will pay for the cost for this year, yet, the amount remains a mystery. According to “Zurich newspaper” it is worth around 250,000 francs.
