never put her roots down
daddy always kept movin’

According to Buddha

The first offering is that of pure drinking water. It is offered with the thought that whatever benefit one accumulates may, for the present, bring about the annihilation of suffering through thirst among beings. Especially beings in realms such as the pretas, or hungry ghosts, may receive relief from the suffering of thirst. The offering is also made so that ultimately all beings may be permeated by loving kindness and compassion.

this blue eye perceives all things conjoined
the past, the future and the present
everything flows and all is connected
this eye is not merely seen reality
it is touching the truth
 
there’s nothing to fear

According to Buddha

It is very good to recite the mantra 
Om mani padme hum,
but while you are doing it,

for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast.
om mani padme hum x1000 (at least)

According to Buddha

On the mundane level, the clear comprehension of impermanence, suffering and non-self will bring us a saner outlook on life. It will free us from unrealistic expectations, bestow a courageous acceptance of suffering and failure and protect us against the lure of deluded assumptions and beliefs. In our quest for the supra-mundane comprehension of the three characteristics will be indispensable.

but i’m coming down the mountain again
get the word to all my good-time friends
the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again
