Title: Jodo Shinshu rock
Post by: Namaste253 on July 13, 2015, 11:01:39 pm
JODO SHINSHU ROCK (verse 1 - 2) 1. Shinran Shonin was a common man, Started out life as a poor orphan, Pure Land teaching is for you, Live your life in the Nembutsu! CHORUS: Singing Jodo, Jodo-Shinshu… Shinshu! Jodo, Jodo-Shinshu… Shinshu! 2. Siddhartha Gautama was a special man, Born a Prince of the Shakya clan, At His birth it rained sweet tea, Now we call it Hanamatsuri!

(verse 3 - 5) 3. Amida teaches harmony, He is always calling me, Kindness to all living things, This is what your heart will sing! CHORUS 4. Suffering is all around, Noble Truths are so profound, We can end our misery, Eightfold Path will be the key! CHORUS 5. I am a link in the Golden Chain, Stretching ‘round this world of pain, Keep my link bright and strong, Accept the Dharma, can’t go wrong! CHORUS

(verse 6 - 7) 6. Primal Vow made for our sake, Buddha nature will awake, Repeat his name is all you do, Just recite the Nembutsu! CHORUS 7. Try your best and do what’s right, You will see Amida’s light, Buddha’s always there for you, Namu Amida Butsu! CHORUS Singing Jodo, Jodo-Shinshu… Shinshu! Jodo, Jodo-Shinshu… Shinshu! We will, we will rock you… Rock you! We will, we will GASSHO… GASSHO!

Very nice.

Have you thought about creating a karaoke video with those lyrics? It would certainly help it go viral:
