  • Dear Brother Buan Tiang,
    I failed to post on your Slide Wall or send a personal Message.
    Thanks for your kind and interesting comments. This Hymn is one of my favorites...it's spiritually uplifting. We sing this Hymn in our Buddhist Association from time to time.
    Thanks and sadhu to your brother for his good work.
    May you be well and happy!

  • Hi Brother Oh,
    thank you for reviving this song via internet. This song was once sang almost daily in Singapore Polytechnic Buddhist Society...guess is 1982 - 1983 period. I still keep a copy of the many Buddhist hyms but guess this song is missing. It will now add to my collection.

    Try to serach for my brother 'Lee Buan Heng'. He is one guy who lead this song in most of our buddhist retreat!

    Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!

    In your work I rejoice! :))

    Keith Lee
