At times, particularly during the middle of the piece, this sustenance is masked by a higher level of rhythmic activity and timbral transformation. Silence is also used as a means of illustrating a sense of the void. In light of this conceptualization it is my sincerest hope that listeners might enter a reflective, even meditative state of mind by experiencing the piece. For detailed information about the scordatura tuning used in the piece see the document hosted at this link.

Practice Within The Order of Buddhist Contemplatives
Great book even though many of the koans were difficult to even follow. Mar 23, Andrew rated it liked it Shelves: buddhism , religion , philosophy-eastern. I'm going to leave this one unrated. My interest in religion and philosophy is wide-ranging, and this is certainly interesting, but even with the explanations as provided, I found it only partly penetrable. I blame this partly on my current spiritual flow and my complete lack of desire to embrace Zen itself.
No judgment here, hence no point in a low rating, and no enticement, hence no point in a high rating. I experienced it, said okay, and now I move on.
