Unpacked – Interview with Photographer Antoine Repessé, Part 1 of 2

Antoine has received much acclaim for his four-year project entitled “#365 Unpacked,” a series of photographic masterpieces featuring recyclable waste. In this series of photographs, he presents to us the 365 kilograms of waste that we, on average, individually produce over the course of a year. Actually, we can’t picture it. The strength of this project is to bring this issue down to a much smaller scale. To allow people to understand it, “Oh yes, indeed, I too contribute in spite of myself, to this massive production of packaging and waste.” Do we really have to generate all that quantity?

Extraordinary Musical Masterworks of the 20th Century, Part 1 of 2

First, let's start with a snippet from the exceptionally gifted Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev's 3rd Piano Concerto. We can feel humor, warmth, passion, sincerity and excitement even in these few short minutes. In this next masterwork, the third movement of the third piano sonata by Alexander Scriabin, we hear the fragile beauty and delightful effervescence of created form. For our final 20th century masterwork, we turn to the prominent Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, Béla Bartók. Marked as "Adagio Religioso," this is the only work in all of Bartók's creative output with a directly spiritual reference.

In Gratitude to Mothers' Boundless Love, Part 3 of 4

If you can, you turn on the machine to wash your clothes yourself. And you can clean the floor, help her to wash dishes, tidy up the house. Don’t throw socks and hats everywhere. Even if she goes out to work outside the house, when she comes home, she still needs to do a lot of work at home. Because the more you grow up, the older and more tired the mother becomes with the years. The stronger you grow, the weaker Mom becomes, so try to think about her feelings, her physical condition and give a lot, a lot of love to the mother, and father of course.

Chin Fei Fong Marionette Theatre Troupe, Part 1 of 2

The current term “Kuilei” in Taiwan (Formosa) refers to marionettes controlled by strings. In southern Fujian and Taiwan (Formosa), we call this art form “Jiali theatre.” In ancient times, marionette theatre was a performance art in royal Chinese courts. This kind of performance could only be watched by emperors or foreign guests in royal courts. Later, it became popular among the common people. After this happened, people performed marionette theater to thank the gods. Performing marionette theatre for the gods or for the Jade Emperor was considered the most respectful of rituals.

Six Paramitas Sutra -The Benevolent Holds No Hatred, Part 5 of 6

This is such a good chance for revenge. I have made this devil running around. Now he is totally exhausted and in agony. I am holding the carved dragon saber in my hand and waiting for the right moment to strike. With a small movement of my arm, I can revenge for my country and my family. Look at him, such a fragile old man. He is not as powerful and strong as he used to be. His heart is dark and full of restless fear. He entrusts his life to me. He spoils his daughter just like an ordinary father. Even the evilest person has a trace of mercy in the heart. He can’t sleep in peace and keeps asking for forgiveness in his dream. Time and tides wait for no one. Even a thousand-man army could win nothing!

“Awakening Through Art” – The 2nd International Artist Day Celebration in Mongolia, Part 5 of 6

Yes, you are right. Real appreciation of any kind of art will lead to an atmosphere of peace. I know you are a very famous painter and artist in Mongolia. But I’m also surprised that you even sense something inside. Not just your art and your talent, but you have some spiritual intuition in your heart. Yes. Any kind of art, like painting and any other artworks, is supposed to remind people to try to go within themselves, find their own Buddha Nature or God Kingdom, instead of the usual, just outer alluring objects. Our outside world is an illusion and I know that, not just by the Buddha’s teaching but my personal experience through meditation.

Traditonal Musical Instrument: Enchanting Mandolin, Part 2 of 2

The exquisite sounds of the mandolin resonate back over a millennium, with recorded instances of mandolin music from the Medieval period (500-1400AD), up to the Renaissance (1400-1600), through the Baroque period (1600-1740AD) and onwards, to our current era. In Medieval times, the lute, a precursor to the modern mandolin, was widely played and appreciated. One branch of its evolution was the mandore, which arose in the Renaissance period and in turn, during the Baroque period, brought forth what we now call the mandolin.

Although there are many variations, the mandolin generally has a hollow wooden body that includes a soundboard with a teardrop shape. Today, the mandolin plays a vital role in both orchestral and bluegrass music. As Mr. Nigel Woodhouse, a professional mandolinist who has played with many world-renowned orchestras and ensembles, explains: “… the mandolin has two of each string; they’re close pairs intended to be played as one string. It’s the doubling of the strings which gives the mandolin its particular resonance and sustain.”

Beautiful. I enjoy all of them. I am very impressed, very impressed. I feel that through the other programs, previous program, and this program, I feel all the Mongolians, they are artistic, talented. And the Mongolia is blessed with so many artists like that. And regarding your (question), the younger generation and young leaders of Mongolia, the Chinese, they say, "First you cultivate yourself until perfection; and then you can take care of your family; and then, further, you can govern the country; and then you can pacify the world," meaning bringing peace to the whole world at large. So, this is the principle that any nation, anyone, any person who are responsible, especially in the government position, should adhere to, not just for the Chinese people, but it is the logical, regal regulation that we all have to adhere to.

#365 Unpacked – Interview with Photographer Antoine Repessé, Part 2 of 2

Ultimately, the solution is simple. Our parents or grandparents weren’t buying all these products, and they lived a much simpler life, which was in tune with seasons, with the environment. And that’s what we need to get back to if we want to try to preserve a little bit of our resources. Beyond the question of recycling, there is also the cost of energy that must be used. It is up to us as consumers to make choices that are responsible, by focusing on buying products that are more environmentally friendly. This message of conservation and the urgent need to act for the preservation of our planet has been echoed time and again by Supreme Master Ching Hai.

Six Paramitas Sutra -The Benevolent Holds No Hatred, Part 6 of 6

Mother, killing King Erg is to avenge for you and the people of Worry-Free Kingdom. My son! Hatred is like a double-edged sword. It will harm yourself at the time of hurting others. Due to ignorance, people don’t know that everything happening now is caused by the karma of past lives. My son, you vowed to be compassionate before, which can dissolve hatred accumulated from many lives. You must use your wisdom to endure the hardship and let go of the hatred! A forgiving person with no evil doings will earn respect. Purifying your heart is the wisest things to do. “The merciful has no enemies and the benevolent holds no hatred.”

Traditional Instrument: Soulful Armenian Duduk

Melodies emanating from the duduk are able to touch our hearts in a profound way that makes us yearn for something bigger than ourselves, for that ultimate love we are always searching for, the true love that every soul desires. The Duduk is one of the oldest double reed instruments in the world. Capable of a wide range of melodies and with its powerful depth of sound, the duduk can create lively rhythmic dance tunes or expressive soul-wrenching songs. In 2005, UNESCO proclaimed the Armenian duduk and its music as a Masterpiece of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Six Paramitas Sutra -The Benevolent Holds No Hatred, Part 2 of 6

Escape from the sea of suffering just for a room and food! Move to a foreign land to start a new life! Father! My father, the beloved king of the people, is protecting the lands and not forsaking anyone. I vow to protect and fight for our kingdom. I won’t allow any damage to our Worry-Free kingdom! Father, your son will lead an elite squad to break through the siege! As long as you, as a king, promise that in exchange of my head, you will grant peace to my people, I will offer my head. I deem the throne as dust and gold or jade as rubble. I sacrifice myself to preserve the lives of the people. The world is ephemeral, and our kingdom is fragile and in danger. The change from living to dead, I go through this for the people, without complaint nor hatred.
