Album Notes
Buddha The Musical
The Musical begins with Queen Maya entering The Garden of Lumbini to give birth to the baby Buddha, Prince Siddhartha.
We witness the wondrous signs evident when the Prince was born and watch the baby Buddha make his seven steps and proclamation.
Because Siddhartha's mother has passed away seven days after his birth, his Aunt brings him up. As the years pass, King Suddhodana and Queen Prajapati Gotami express their concern over the direction the teenage prince is taking in his life.
A beautiful swan flies over the palace grounds and was shot by Devadatta, Siddhartha's cousin. Fortunately Siddhartha found the swan and comforted it with care and compassion. In the meantime, Devadatta and his friends demand the swan back. Siddhartha protects the swan and sends Devadatta away with the words "So the swan stays with the one who saved it, not with the one who tried to destroy it"
Images of busy cities are seen, transposing to tranquil Buddhist temple scenes which in turn evolve into images of the Buddha, with the concluding phrase: "Do no evil, do only good, train your mind, this is the teaching of the Buddha, this is the path to enlightenment"
