I woke up this morning to hear the sad news about Adam 'MCA' Yauch's passing after a 3 year battle with cancer.
I felt the only appropriate thing to do was put Paul's Boutique on the turntable, turn it up and enjoy one of the finest Hip-Hop albums ever released.
I'm not religious at all, and I'm not at all educated on the teachings of Buddhism, but I do think MCAs interpretation of Buddhism can teach anyone a lot.
From his song Bodhisattva Vow:
A Strength From Within To Go The Length
Seeing Others Are As Important As Myself
I Strive For A Happiness Of Mental Wealth
With The Interconnectedness That We Share As One
Every Action That We Take Affects Everyone
So In Deciding For What A Situation Calls
There Is A Path For The Good For All
