3 free improvisations we recorded in September, 2014 A.D.

- Hands !

All they who thoughtless are, nor heed,
what time Death's messengers appear,
must long the pangs of suffering feel
in some base body habiting.
But all those good and holy men,
what time they see Death's messengers,
behave not thoughtless, but give heed
to what the Noble Doctrine says;
and in attachment frightened see
of birth and death the fertile source,
and from attachment free themselves,
Thus birth and death extinguishing.
Secure and happy ones are they,
released from all this fleeting show;
exempt from all sin and fear
all misery have they overcome.

- Anguttara Nikaya
