about

ABOUT:

Based on the highly acclaimed film "Walk With Me', the Soundscape is a unique audio meditation experience.

The atmosphere of the Soundscape is created with the sounds of nature and mindfulness bells, and out of this backdrop, high-end stereo recordings of the chants from the Plum Village monastic choir emerge.

These chants were specially recorded for ‘Walk With Me’ and they include: The Morning Chant, The Great Bell Chant, The Heart Sutra and The Avalokiteshvaraya chant.

Like in the film, Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice is interwoven throughout - reading from key passages of Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, ‘Fragrant Palm Leaves’ which describes his courageous and insightful search to find his true self and true calling.

We’ve also hand-picked key Thich Nhat Hanh dharma talks on how to connect with our ancestors, finding happiness and finding presence, and understanding how to connect to our inner nature so we can connect to our planet.

We trust that after 55 minutes of listening to this audio experience you will be able to come back to yourself with a renewed sense of calm and personal insight.

Track Name: The Morning Chant
TRANSLATION:

The Dharma body is bringing morning light.
In concentration, our hearts are at peace,
a half-smile is born upon our lips.

This is a new day.
We vow to go through it in mindfulness.
The sun of wisdom has now risen,
shining in every direction.
Noble Sangha, diligently bring your mind into meditation.

Track Name: The Heart Sutra Chant
LYRICS TRANSLATION:

Avalokiteshvara,
while practicing deeply with
the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore,
suddenly discovered that
all of the five Skandhas are equally empty,
and with this realisation
he overcame all Ill-being.

“Listen Sariputra,
this Body itself is Emptiness
and Emptiness itself is this Body.
This Body is not other than Emptiness
and Emptiness is not other than this Body.
The same is true of Feelings,
Perceptions, Mental Formations,
and Consciousness.

“Listen Sariputra,
all phenomena bear the mark of Emptiness;
their true nature is the nature of
no Birth no Death,
no Being no Non-being,
no Defilement no Purity,
no Increasing no Decreasing.
“That is why in Emptiness,
Body, Feelings, Perceptions,
Mental Formations and Consciousness
are not separate self entities.

The Eighteen Realms of Phenomena
which are the six Sense Organs,
the six Sense Objects,
and the six Consciousnesses
are also not separate self entities.

The Twelve Links of Interdependent Arising
and their Extinction
are also not separate self entities.
Ill-being, the Causes of Ill-being,
the End of Ill-being, the Path,
insight and attainment,
are also not separate self entities.

Whoever can see this
no longer needs anything to attain.

Bodhisattvas who practice
the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore
see no more obstacles in their mind,
and because there
are no more obstacles in their mind,
they can overcome all fear,
destroy all wrong perceptions
and realize Perfect Nirvana.

“All Buddhas in the past, present and future
by practicing
the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore
are all capable of attaining
Authentic and Perfect Enlightenment.

“Therefore Sariputra,
it should be known that
the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore
is a Great Mantra,
the most illuminating mantra,
the highest mantra,
a mantra beyond compare,
the True Wisdom that has the power
to put an end to all kinds of suffering.

Therefore let us proclaim
a mantra to praise
the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore
