Body:
Em D Em D Em
I am a circle of rocks, you are a circle of rocks
D Em D Em D
With a rock at our center.
Em D Em D Em
I am a circle of rocks, you are a circle of rocks
D Em D Em D
With a rock at our center.
Em D Em D Em
I open my circle to you, you open your circle to me
D Em D Em D
& you begin to send me.
Em D Em D Em
I open my circle to you, you open your circle to me
D Em D Em
& you begin to send me.
D C D Em D
“WHY ARE WE HERE?” THE BUDDHIST ASKED THE RIMPOCHE
C D Em D
“WHY ARE WE HERE?” “TO COMMUNE WITH THE BUDDHAS”
Em D Em D Em
I am a circle of rocks, you are a circle of rocks
D Em D Em D
With a rock at our center.
Em D Em D Em
I am a circle of rocks, you are a circle of rocks
D Em D Em D
With a rock at our center.
Em D Em D Em
I open my circle to you, you open your circle to me
D Em D Em D
& you begin to send me. (a tongue of rocks).
Em D Em D
When that tongue reaches me, when that tongue reaches me
Em D Em D Em D
Something begins a-happening.
Em D Em D
When your tongue reaches me, when your tongue reaches me
Em D Em D Em
Something begins to zing, zing zing...

“WHY ARE WE HERE?” THE BUDDHIST ASKED THE RIMPOCHE
C D Em D
“WHY ARE WE HERE?” “TO COMMUNE WITH THE BUDDHAS”
Em D Em D Em D Em D Em D
When your center touches mine, something happens to me:
Em D Em D Em D Em D Em D
I begin to shake and shimmer and soon I cannot see;
Em D Em D Em
I am a beam of light, you are a beam of light
D Em D Em D
Shining down through the holes in the lid.
Em D Em D Em
There is no separate entity, no “you”, no “me”,
D Em D
Just me-in-you and you-in-me & soon together we...
Em D Em D Em D
Activate our soul
D C D Em D
“WHY ARE WE HERE?” THE BUDDHIST ASKED THE RIMPOCHE
C D Em D
“WHY ARE WE HERE?” “TO COMMUNE WITH THE BUDDHAS”
Em D Em D
But if we could see above that lid,
Em D Em D
We’d see there is no separate entity.
Em D Em D
No you…
Em D Em D
No me…
Em D Em D Em D Em D
Commu- - - nity - That’s you, that’s me
Em D Em D Em D Em D
Commu- - - nity Activate our soul
