Enrich your hearts with Buddhist Melodies...
Buddhist Meditation is the music created for or inspired by Buddhism and part of Buddhist art. Chinese Buddhist Music utilizes a rich variety of musical instruments during chants and hymns. Since these instruments are used in the propagation of Buddhist teachings, they are collectively named Dharma instruments. Instruments such as the gong, large bell (ch. qing), large drum (ch. gu), wooden fish, small cymbals, large cymbals and Chinese tambourine punctuate both Chinese folk and Buddhist Music. In modern practice, Chinese Buddhist Music is frequently accompanied by a variety of Chinese orchestral instruments, piano, or traditional European symphony orchestras.
Buddhist melodies are characterized as being strong, but not fierce; soft, but not weak; pure, but not dry; still, but not sluggish, and able to help purify the hearts of listeners. By listening it, you can enrich and reenergize your hearts, reach the most remote places and overcome the limitations of time and distance, as well as differences in cultural backgrounds and nationalities.

My favorite song is the Great Compassion Mantra . I listen to it with the lite app ( free) and I love it so much that I bought the full version!
My 5 years old daughter enjoys listen to the Great Mantra Compassion. She would listen to it every night until she falls asleep! This song has become her favorite " lullaby" .
Thank you to the developer for putting together this previous app! It is a real gem !
Love it !
These are very good songs to meditate to. If you want you can select only one song and have it repeat for the length of time you wish to meditate. P.s.- UPDATE your phone and you will have no problems. Namaste
