‘Happy indeed we live; friendly amid the haters.Arthasiddhi writes from the UK with news of a musical competition: “We have invited composers in our community to set to music three verses (for voice only) from the Dhammapada that express the Buddha’s vision for the Sangha. Five people have submitted music that will be simple enough that untrained singers may learn it. The submissions are from: Akashadeva, Emma Choporian, Yashodaka, Vipulakirti and Graham Patterson. On the evening of November the 11th we will hear all five pieces, and the audience will vote on the winning piece, which will be learned by the Cambridge Sangha on Sangha Day. We hope to record at least some of the music for a wider audience.
Among those who hate, we dwell free from hate.
Happy indeed we live, healthy amid the sick.
Among those who are sick, we dwell free from sickness.
Happy indeed we live, content amid the greedy.
Among those who are greedy, we dwell free from greed.’
