Triop to play Buddhapalooza, Saturday April 7 2012

April 6, 2012

Triop has been given a great opportunity to perform at this years Buddhapalooza being held in Chattanooga Tennessee.

This will be our first out of state show and we are really excited that it coincides with this event.

The music we play is a meditation in itself, and being able to share it with fellow seekers of peace of mind is an awesome thing.

Buddhapalooza Presents Three Buddhist Traditions

All Welcome to Day of Meditation, Lectures and Performance

In Japan, Zen Buddhists celebrate April 8 as the Buddhas Birthday. Continuing a celebration that began locally last year, the Zen Group of Chattanooga will bring together three Buddhist traditions to offer a day of meditation, dharma talks (lectures) and performance on Saturday, April 7 to honor the great teacher.

Anyone interested in Buddhism will find times during the event to learn more, as Zen meditation instruction, a lecture by a Theravadan monk, another with chanting by followers of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and yet another from a representative of the Zen Group, will be presented. Beginners instruction in zazen, the Zen form of meditation, will be offered as well. The event will open with a traditional Zen hanamatsuri ceremony commemorating the Buddhas birth.

Performances designed to celebrate Buddhist thought will also be featured, including a reading of Allen Ginsbergs America (Ginsberg was a practicing Tibetan Buddhist), readings of poems by contemporary Buddhist poet Jane Hirshfield, and performances by the musical groups NADA and the Atlanta-based Triop.

The day will be a benefit for the Chattanooga Zen Center, leading to the goal of incorporation as a nonprofit and eventually establishing its own space and zendo, so a $7 donation at the door will be welcomed, but no one will be turned away.
