The Envelope, Please
Monks at Sherab Ling Monastery in India may soon have a new statue to add to their collection. Their album, Sacred Tibetan Chant, has been nominated for the 2003 Grammy award for best traditional world music album. The album records Karma Kagyu lineage prayers, Mahakala pujas (a ritual to overcome obstacles in one’s life), and merit dedications for all sentient beings. Other “Buddhist” songs that have been past Grammy nominees include Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” and Bob Dylan’s “Gonna Change My Way of Thinking.”
