about

Offering flowers of devotion for my birthday.
These are lo-fi songs that may never see the light or make it on an album,
so I thought I'd share them anyway.

"crimson" recorded after solstice on laptop 2016
"asato ma" recorded in Vancouver 2009
"waterfalls" part birthed in Maui 2015 and part in Pennsylvania 2013

credits

released August 23, 2016

Track 3 "crimson" is an adapted cover version of the song by Singh Kaur which is originally translated from Sukhmani Sahib (Peace Lagoon) of the Sikhs. I was inspired to sing it by Khalsa Kaur this summer solstice.

Track Name: crimson
My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord.

My Soul is filled with your Love.

you tested my Heart with your Touchstone,

and Found it to be Pure.


Through the Guru, I am dyed a Deep Crimson.



This body and mind are wet with the Love of the Lord.

Nanak, the slave has been drenched in your Fragrance,

and this life of mine has been blessed.



The song of the Lord's Love is like the piercing arrow.

It has struck deep into my Heart.

Those who have felt Love's pain know how to withstand it.


The one who dies to this life while yet alive,

has achieved Liberation in their lifetime.



Oh, God, make thy slave to meet with the True Guru.

So we can cross the difficult ocean...

So we can cross the difficult ocean...

So we can cross this difficult ocean of the world.
...



My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...
My eyes are damp with the Nectar of the Lord...

My Soul is filled with your Love.

you tested my Heart with your Touchstone,

and Found it to be Pure.



Through the Guru, I am dyed a Deep Crimson.
Track Name: asato ma
Asato mā sadgamaya
tamasomā jyotir gamaya
mrityormāamritam gamaya
Oṁ śhānti śhānti śhāntiḥ


in Sanskrit

translation:
From ignorance, lead me to truth;
From darkness, lead me to light;
From death, lead me to immortality
Om peace, peace, peace
Track Name: waterfalls
Oh my sweet Mother
My devotion flows like water falls

and I lay my head at your feet
as they step
as they bless this land with peace
and I kiss your hands as they weave
as they weave the universe
as they weave the universe

wandering a million years
and she will find you she will find you
you can cry a million tears
and she will hold you she will hold you
we've all been broken
all been broken all been broken all been broken

cascadas blancas cascadas blancas cascadas blancas
(white waterfalls)
