REQUEST AN MP3 OF THE TRACK
I ask people to donate to the various charities mentioned above,
this is to proliferate “additional donations”, rather than asking for confirmation of previous donations made.
Many thousands of hours and a vast amount of money has been
invested in the production of my music, for which I ask nothing more than for people to make specific donations to the selected charities.

Having followed one of the above links and made a donation please send a copy of the receipt to me by email at : garyazukx@gmail.com to receive an MP3.

If you are a Monastic or unable to donate, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your generosity and encouragement. I pray that with your continued support and prevailing conditions, I will be afforded the privilege of making Dharma music for many years to come.  🙏🏻

My Very Best Wishes To You All
Gary Azukx

The official release of the track coincided with the Bhutanese national holiday that celebrates the coronation day of the former King of Bhutan Jigme Singye Wangchuck, and 4th Druk Gyalpo (1974). It also doubles as Social Forestry Day, where children plant trees.

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche sent me this wonderful recording sung by Dawa Zangmo and asked me to create some ambient backing music for it.
He said, "Imagine a mountain valley, with eagles, wind and thunder. it's kind of a sad song. Please see lyrics below.
Hopefully I managed to capture the essence of Dawa's beautiful vocal and Rinpoche's direction.
For me, the fact that the voice was recorded very simply, perhaps just on a telephone, gives it a unique authenticity that is very precious.
A great honour to be involved in this project.

lyrics

དགུང་སྟོད་མཐོན་པོའི་རྒྱ་ཡུལ་ཡ་ལ་ཆེ་མི་་་་་ཆེ་ལ།
ཁྲི་གདུངས་ཉི་མའི་ས་ཐག་ཡ་ལ་རིང་མི་རིང།
Lonely and so vast is skies expanse
Sun’s trajectory is oh so long

ཁྲི་གདུགས་ས་ཐག་རིངས་ཀྱང་ཡ་ལ་སྔོན་གྱི་ལས་ལ།
གླིང་བཞི་སྐོར་བའི་གཉེན་གྲོགས་ཡ་ལ་རང་ལུ་་་་མེད་ལ།
Even though it’s distant, karma does
Take me friendless, through four continents

གཡུས་བཟང་མཐོན་པའི་རྒྱ་ཡུལ་ཡ་ལ་ཆེ་མི་་་ཆེ་ལ།
སྤྲང་མོའི་ཆོས་ལམ་ས་ཐག་ཡ་ལ་རིང་མི་་་་རིང་ལ།
Vast and lofty landscape, in it’s midst
Destitute am I, on Dharma’s faraway path

ཆོས་ལམ་ས་ཐག་རིངས་ཀྱང་ཡ་ལ་སྔོན་གྱི་ལས་ལ།
གཡུས་བཟང་སྐོར་བའི་གཉེན་གྲོགས་ཡ་ལ་རང་ལུ་་་་མེད་ལ།
Even though it’s distant, karma does
Take me, meandering through it with no friends.
