🎵 U2, A.R Rahman – Ahimsa

 

Here is the new U2 song

Ahimsa is a single from the Irish musical group U2 and the Indian composer A. R. Rahman, published November 22, 2019.

In September 2019, Rahman and the Irish group had a meeting in New York, at the Electric Lady Studios, to trace the guidelines of the musical project that led to the birth of the musical piece. On the meaning of the song, Rahman, in an interview with the Indian edition of Rolling Stone, stated that it originates from the meaning of the Sanskrit word ahimsa, which can be summarized in non-violence. The U2 frontman, Bono, on this track recalled how the commitment of the Irish group to respect human rights is a key element of their work and how Martin Luther King was a witness for them. Moreover, Martin Luther King himself saw an example in Gandhi.

The song begins and ends with a female choir composed of Raheema and Khatija, Rahman’s daughters, who sing verses extracted from the book Tirukkural, written in Tamil

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli: avihiṃsā) is term meaning “not to injure”, derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike (hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm). Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and is one of the cardinal virtues and an important ethical and mystical tenet of Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. It can involve many complex and multidimensional concepts, inspired by the premise that all living beings have the spark of the divine spiritual energy (prana), and relationships of Karma, and that to needlessly oppress any being is to hurt oneself, and all beings, in ways that can be obvious or mysterious. Strongly inspired by Hindu and Jain concepts of ahimsa, Mahatma Gandhi popularized many of its strategies worldwide, among people of many diverse traditions.

But we wake up to dream

Ti incontrerò dove il cielo è diviso
Ti incontrerò alla fine
Ti incontrerò prima che il mondo sia nato
Quando non ci importava di nulla

Questo è un invito
In una posizione elevata
Da qualcuno che vuole essere amato
Questa è una meditazione
Sulla tua stazione radio
Se ti piace, puoi cantare insieme

Ci vediamo dove non si piange
Le tue lacrime sono ora un flusso
Ci vediamo dove non si dorme
Ma ci svegliamo per sognare

Questo è un invito
Ad essere all’altezza
Di qualcuno che vuole essere amato
Questa è una meditazione
Sulla tua stazione radio
Se ti piace, possiamo cantare insieme

Welcome December

december

How many of you will spend Christmas away from your family? Many of you will spend it with your relatives. Very few instead away from home. The saying says: “At Christmas with your (parents) and at Easter with the people you want”.

When December starts the countdown for Christmas and New Year’s event starts automatically.

The days are short and the sky darkens early. The cold forces us to wear sweaters and coats, and when we walk around the shops, the windows are gorgeous.

I have always wanted to spend a Christmas away from home, and therefore far from everything that characterizes the Christmas holidays: money, gifts, consumerism, food etc …

Christmas is increasingly synonymous with consumerism but I don’t know if it is synonymous with happiness. I admire those people who volunteer on Christmas and later, delivering gifts on the streets or assisting Needy Children.
