Golden Light – Lux Aurumque

Lux Aurumque is a wonderful video of singers around the world conducted by Eric Whitacre. There are 185 voices from 12 countries. The music is awe-inspiring!

Lama Surya Das wrote,

Check out the power and blessings of voices raised together in spirit in this  magnificent musical sangha effort, which uplifts and edifies the mind and nourishes the soul.  This collective and inclusive piece bears out the importance of refocusing from me and you to WE, in our interconnected era of increasing interwoveness and interbeing, awakening together.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh coined the word, “interbeing.” It implies the interconnectedness of all things. He says, “To be is to inter-be!”

Zen Master Bernie Glassman says that our depth of enlightenment is in direct relationship to our awareness of interbeing.

I found a translation of the Latin lyrics:

warm and heavy as pure gold
and angels sing softly
to the new-born babe.

Edward Esch
(Translated to Latin by Charles Anthony Silvestri)

This is truly magnificent! What do you think?
