Bus Station Sonata ‘many hands make light work of Beethoven’

At the Haymarket Bus Station in Newcastle (UK), commuters and passers-by were invited to contribute a note or two to a Beethoven Sonata. Men and women, young and old, people from different walks of life — they all lent a hand and shared in a centuries-old musical tradition.

The work was funded by The Arts Council of England, and Nexus Art, with support in kind from MITES Liverpool. and a special thanks to Tyneside Piano Company for agreeing to install a mini grande in the bus station.

Religion means…

I think the word religion means gathering together all energy at all levels, physical, moral, spiritual, at all levels, gathering all this energy which will bring about a great attention.

And from there move.

To me that is the meaning of that word.

The gathering of total energy to understand what thought cannot possibly capture.

Thought is never new, never free, and therefore it’s always conditioned, fragmentary, and so on.

So religion is not a thing put together by Thought, or by fear, or by the pursuit of satisfaction and pleasure.

But something totally beyond all this, which isn’t romanticism, speculative belief, or sentimentality.

And I think if we could keep to the meaning of that word, putting aside all the superstitious nonsense that is going on in the world in the name of religion.

~ J. Krishnamurti
