Buddha Song  佛曲

STORIES, MUSIC VIDEO & IMAGES 故事、音樂視頻和靚相


The only religion I know is Christianity and I have limited let alone in depth knowledge of any other religion. Yet I found some Buddhist verses uplifting, especially when I was in turmoil. As a child in Hong Kong, I noticed the influence of Buddhism, especially amongst the lower classes, which I was familiar with as I lived amongst them. However, I noticed these people were not interested in religious doctrine. They were secular and wished that a mixture of Buddhist and Taoist deity (as shown in local popular stories, Cantonese opera dramas and Hong Kong Cantonese films) to bless them with good living and happiness ― perhaps a little akin to worshiping gods in ancient Greece and Rome. Buddhism, though it originated in India, has influenced China, Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia, and evolved with local cultures. In Hong Kong, Buddhist monks and nuns shaved their heads, and must practise celibacy and veganism. Yet in many novels, including Hong Kong martial arts novels that I have read, Buddhist monks have been portrayed as licentious, and even eating dog meat (illegal in Hong Kong), yet on the other extreme some have reached the wisdom of forsaking all desires, and their sayings enlightened those who are still in the 'Bitter Sea (worldly sufferings)'. I suppose this is all due to good and bad of human natures rather than a particular religion. There are many interesting incidents/stories that I have experienced or heard, and I will gradually add these onto this page. The fact is, one can see the influence of Buddhism in literature, in architecture and in art...

我唯一有認識的宗教是基督教,對其他的宗教認知有限。但在迷惘痛苦的時刻,有些佛偈頗能指點迷津。小時候在香港,在我生活的環境中,感受到佛教對草根階層的影響,這些人對教義不感興趣,他們是世俗的,希望佛教道教的神靈保祐,有求必應,使他們生活美好,有點像古希臘和羅馬拜很多神祈福那樣。我對這些混合佛道的神祗的認識,來自連環圖、聽大人講故事、通俗小說、大戲和唐片(粵劇和粵語電影)。佛教雖源於印度,但影響及於中國、韓國、日本和東南亞,佛教亦受到當地文化的影響有所演變。在香港,僧尼都光頭,禁慾吃素,然而在許多小說中,包括我讀過的香港武術小說,都有淫僧和狗肉和尚的描寫(在香港吃狗是犯法的),但每讀到講高僧的,又令我十分神往,高僧一言,能令人脫苦海大澈大悟。我想人性的好與壞,不限於任何宗教吧。無何致疑地,佛教影響文學、建築和藝術。我將在此頁逐漸添加與佛教有關的見聞和趣事。


I wrote a piece many years ago as inspired by what I remember of monks/nuns chanting the name of Buddha, and what I remember of a song that I learned in primary school which was the story of a Buddhist monk. I use the recording to make a music video, with images modified from photos of Buddha taken by my friend Kitty Kwan at Dazu Rock Carvings and Longmen Grottoes. I know Kitty from our school days at Hong Kong True Light Middle School.

多年前我作《佛曲》,靈感來自小時在香港聽到僧尼誦佛,和小學時唱過目連僧。我用此曲錄音製音樂視頻,形象取材和修改自真光同學兼老友關伯瑋在大足石刻和龍門石窟拍攝的佛像。

In the following I share some photos taken by people I know, of Buddha and temples that they took in various parts of the world reflecting Buddhism merging with different cultures: CLICK EACH IMAGE TO ENLARGE

Juliet Chenery-Robson

Juliet is an accomplished photographer — see more of her excellent photos in my music video "Wisdom and Love". The following are photos of the well known Kamakura Buddha in Japan and how people try to capture and pose before it. After that there are some cute Buddhas, and then various forms of Buddha.

朱麗葉.陳奈尼-羅布森是出色的攝影家,我的音樂視頻《智慧與愛》有更多她的靚相。以下是她影的日本鎌倉大佛,和尚和學生擺姿勢打卡,可愛佛和各種佛。

Mr Leung 梁熾衡

Mr. Chee-Hung Leung was a member of staff at the True Light Middle School of Hong Kong who remains very connected with alumni of the school. He travels a lot and likes to take photographs. I have modified one of his photos in my "Four Songs in Chinese" music video. The following photos were taken in Burma and China.

梁生曾是香港真光中學的教職員,與校友們密切聯繫,經常旅行,喜歡拍照。我在《聯篇曲》音樂視頻用過一張他的蓮花靚相。以下照片是梁生在緬甸和中國影的,還有很多,整理後再上傳以供欣賞。

Choy May-Chu 蔡美珠

May-Chu and I were classmates for six years at the True Light Middle School of Hong Kong. I spent about a year to modify/animate her beautiful paintings and photos in "Four Songs in Chinese" – a playlist of six music videos. She is now living in Taiwan and the following photos were taken there.

我和美珠在香港真光中學做了六年同學。我花了大約一年時間用她的靚畫靚相製造《聯篇曲》,是一系列的六個音樂視頻“。她現居台灣,以下是在台灣拍攝的。
