    Dictionary Terms Explained

    Deuter - Musical artist
    Deuter is an internationally acclaimed musician and composer whoís recorded and released over 50 albums in his career so far. He specialises in creating New Age music, combining his love for acoustic and electronic instruments with the wonderful sounds of nature and ethnic influences.

    Deuter was born in Germany and taught himself to play the guitar, flute and harmonica. Although he always loved music, it wasnít until he was involved in a near fatal car crash in his early 20s that he finally decided his true vocation in life was to work as a musician. As a result, his first album, D, was released in 1971 and heís gone on to produce a wide variety of much-loved albums.

    Many of Deuterís early recordings are meditative and contemplative and reflect elements of Deuterís own spiritual search. He was one of the first musicians to successfully blend together Eastern and Western traditions and much of his music is inspiring, uplifting and full of spirit.

    Since his first album in 1971, Deuter has continued to be passionately involved in creating and composing music, bringing out at least one album almost every year since, and his wonderful repertoire is enjoyed by people worldwide.

    Buddha / Buddhism - Enlightenment
    Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one". The Buddha began life in the 6th century BC as Siddhartha Gautama, the son of a tribal leader, in an area that is now probably Nepal. From this privileged position, he began to wonder about the meaning of life and death and of growing old. It is said that one day he met a sadhu, (a holy man), who had given up all material possessions to go forth in search of truth. This must have been a major factor in inspiring Siddharta, at 29, to leave behind his comfortable life - and his wife and child - in order to find the truth.

    He went in search of teachers, illuminated ones who could give him the knowledge he sought. He would absorb their teachings and then move on, valuing what he had learned but always feeling that there was something more, something that he was missing. For years he practised a programme of austerities, which in many ways amount to self-torture, during which he became weaker and weaker through long periods of fasting. He began to accumulate disciples, impressed by his great feats of asceticism. Eventually he realised that his austerities were not bringing him any closer to the truth, and he began to eat again. After nearly killing himself through lack of food the Buddha realised there was a middle way between deprivation and indulgence.

    Six years after leaving his home and family, he came to a place now known as Buddha Gaya, and stopped under a tree by a river. He started to relax his whole being, and stopped pushing so hard for the truth. Through meditation, he plunged deeper and deeper into his super-consciousness. After 49 days under the tree it is said he attained enlightenment where he understood the root of all suffering and also what steps were needed to end suffering.

    To wear, carry or have around you symbols of the Buddha reminds us that total peace and bliss are possible. It reminds us of the words that hint at what enlightenment feels like: illumination, knowing, peace, calm, clarity, wisdom, profound love, and bliss.

    Deuter really has some pedigree now. Having helped the Indian mystic Osho with recording many of his Active Meditation series in the early 70's and many awards and accolades over the years. He seems to have established himself at the top of his tree. This album is captivating and entrancing. It is melodic and is an accomplished piece of work. He seems to feel a strong connection with the Buddha and has done much personal work with meditation etc - he tells a nice story on the inside cover of the CD: 'One of my favourite Zen stories is the one about Tozan weighing flax:

    'The master was weighing some flax in the storeroom. A monk came up to him and asked: 'What is Buddha?' Tozan said, 'This flax weighs five pounds.'

    This little but potent story, awakened me one day to a deeper understanding of Buddha nature and a sudden seeing that everything I have always been searching for is already happening, right now, in this moment. It gave me a glimpse of the incredible mystery of life and our existence.

    Today, Tozan would probably not be weighing flax but maybe changing the oil in his motorbike, reading an e-mail or playing the flute. And his answer would be different, according to the moment. Because it is the quality of being present in this very moment - that is Buddha nature. Not having one's mind travel into the past or future, but relaxing into what is, non-doing and learning to enjoy one's being. C.G.Deuter
