Mandala Mari sang the following Sutra to Indian classical music Raga and Tala style. (Pali is not available for song language selection, so Japanese is selected.)
The worship texts of Theravada Buddhism and the three devotions that are common to all Buddhism and the Pali sutras of the five precepts.
Indian dancer KunjuBihari was in charge of composing and producing the music.
The Raag was kafi and durga. The rhythms used are Dadra and Sitarkhani.

These days, along with mindfulness, words from early Buddhism such as awareness, being here and now, and just being are becoming popular.
People often jump at these words and join meditation sessions in search of immediate benefits such as increasing work efficiency, reducing stress, sleeping soundly, becoming mentally stable and relaxed, and improving illness.

However, in practicing mindfulness meditation, we should learn the teachings of the Buddha, which are taught by Theravada Buddhism. then, I think you will be able to understand the value of moving towards true happiness, rather than relative and impermanent worldly happiness.

This song is a sutra about basic Buddhist beliefs that are common to all Buddhists, regardless of sect. By singing it, you can not only make it easier to remember, but also purify and lift the vibrations of the listener's heart.

The second half of the song is the five precepts.
When modern people hear the word precepts, they tend to immediately think of them as constraints, but Buddhist precepts are not of the kind that are imposed by authority and punishable if broken.

Buddhist precepts are derived from morality,
Morality was originally born out of compassion.
If you can follow this, you will be able to avoid the unfortunate reality that arises from foolishness, and you will be able to protect yourself from the taint of sin. In other words, it is not bondage, but freedom from the taint of one's sins.

May all living things be happy!
