Goodbye Sarah (early poem)
How many times have lovers parted?
As many lovers as have been.

I take leave of you
Making no promise of return.

Rain falls gently upon us
Snowflakes from our eyes.

Song composed while pissing and drinking (early poem)
Out with you, out with you . . .

You’ve been in here long enough,
You must hurry and be on your way,
I can’t have you any longer,
This is your final day.

All I did was have a drink,
And now here’s you,
A poisonous vile stink.

Causing so much pain . . .

A foul liquid indeed,
But really not so tough,
Diluted in gleaming toilet bowl,
I’ll flush you soon enough . . .

Hope you don’t mind my saying so,
But it pleases me to say . . .

Sweet relief is but a Piss away.

Song of Celebration for Sake (early poem)
Author’s Note : The following poem about sake was written around 1977 at Marpa House in Boulder, Colorado. A Zen-style drinking poem, must only be recited aloud while consuming sake. Of course, this poem was written in the ‘good old days’ when the words ‘political’ and ‘correct’ were seldom said sequentially. This poem was written at a time when we used to drink massive quantities of sake on a regular basis.

The entire Universe is immersed in sake,
if it disappears . . . so what,
this sake mind is without regrets or boundaries.

Yes! Countless times I’ve been drunk,
and tonight . . . also . . .
. . . my sake flask is full . . .

There is nothing to do beyond this . . .
. . . in draining sake . . .
. . .celebrate an Empty Cup. . .

Reflections about recent Past and near Future...

Last summer, Tom, Ishwar, Nick, Suril and Buddha Bomb made camp at the 3-Day Enosa Psytrance Festival in the Oregon woods. They partied all night and well into each day; gusto in the Great Northwest.

During the past year, local Psytrance communities of Boulder and Denver are becoming as OneTribe.

The summer of 2005 is rapidly approaching. Buddha Bomb and friends will venture to Germany for the Full Moon Festival (July 15-21). Live updates will be posted during the Festival.

Buddha Bomb is contemplating attending Burning Man...stay tuned...

Mantra
Mantras can excite the emotions and give suggestions to the mind. Mantras affect both the one who chants them and the one who hears them. The word mantra comes from the Sanskrit "mantrana", which means advice or suggestion. In a sense, every word is a mantra. In our daily life we use words to get everything done, obtain everything we need. Each mantra or word is a sound pattern that suggests to the mind the meanings inherent in it, and the mind immediately responds.

According to Ramana Maharshi, repetition of mantras (japa), with attention directed to the source of the sound, completely engages the mind. This is Tapas (penance). The source is not in the vocal chords alone, but also the idea of the sound is in the mind, whose source is self. Thus the practice of mantra repetition is more than a suggestion, a bit of advice or an idea. It is a means of getting in touch with our self.

Mantras may be used for religious worship, for japa (repetition), for healing, to help spiritual evolution, for purification, for making offerings and in Mantra Yoga. Some mantras are only chants or expressions of nearness to the Divine. But some saints who were inspired by divine love and unshakable faith used these mantras in their own spiritual practice and their followers afterwards started using those mantras, calling them mahamantras or great mantras.
