ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American Buddhist folk songs - - pioneering a new wave of Western Buddhist culture. Socially awake, talking about mad American Beef Cows, peak oil, and cause and effect, Rev. Heng Sure has been called "the Buddhist John Denver." These are clean, homespun tunes featuring guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and dulcimer. The musicians helping out include some of the Bay Area's most experienced acoustic players: Henry Kaiser, Alan Senauke, Paul Hostetter, Josh Michaell, Robin Petrie, and Brian Godchaux.


"Rev. Heng Sure embodies what's best in contemporary Western Dharma: deep wisdom and compassion cultivated over many years of practice combined with a playful spirit, warmth and accessibility that delight and inspire. These songs touch us in a way that makes us want to act to make the world a better place. And it's darn good music!"
-- James Baraz, Spirit Rock Meditation Center

Nice music, nice lyrics. I will definitely recommend the CD to friends. I wish Rev. Heng Sure would end his teaching by singing one of the songs.

Richard Walker

Paramita: American Buddhist Folk Songs
Rev. Heng Sure sounds at times like Gordon Lightfoot and touches the heart of American folk music. Most of the chord progressions are classic, and the melodies singable. The guitar and accompaniment is tasteful and heartfelt. Several songs are humorous, and many of them touch upon both timeless and current themes ("watcha gonna do when the president lies?"). I'm gonna keep this one in my car for an around-town sing along.
