about

*Digipack CD, Digibook CD and Lathe Cut 12"+7" will be release in the middle of March 2019.

Two albums of jì lú, the new music project after Raflum.
Agama is transliterated from a Sanskrit term “āgama.” In Buddhism, the term āgama is used to refer to a collection of sutra of the early Mahāyānistic Buddhist schools. It was collected and published by Buddha’s scholarly students after Buddha’s death. It was the very first written down sutra, and also the origin of later Buddhism doctrine. In this album Sramana Jiran selects Buddhist hymns freely from the four extant collections of āgamas, and composing them as a collection of āgama songs. The last song of the album is a cover of a two thousand years old song — “Epitaph of Seikilos,” which engraved on a tombstone from the Hellenistic town Tralles near present-day Aydin, Turkey. The epitaph has been variously dated, but seems to be either from the 1st or the 2nd century AD. (In the East it is the time during the Han Dynasty, which is also the time when Buddhism was introduced into China.) The Seikilos epitaph is the oldest surviving ancient Greek musical notation, and at the same time, is the oldest surviving complete musical composition from anywhere in the world. The recomposed version of this song was attached at the end of this album.

阿笈暮,梵文agama音譯,也譯「阿含」「阿含暮」等,意譯為「法歸」、「教」、「傳」等,有「集結教法的經典」或「傳承的教法」之意。《阿含經》是釋迦牟尼圓寂後,其弟子回憶其教法,推選出500高僧在七個月的時間內敘述並核實以傳世,落實成文的最初經典,更是後世佛法之根始源流。而今,寂然法師自四部《阿含》之諸多頌偈中採擷輯結,隨心湊泊,合歌擬韻為「阿笈暮鈔歌集」。末首曲目為翻唱兩千年前的短歌--「塞基洛斯墓誌銘(Seikilos epitaph)」,原曲是1883年土耳其艾登地區特雷斯城出土墓碑上所刻有的一段旋律與歌詞,因是塞基洛斯為其亡妻所立,故名。據考年代為公元前200年至公元100年之間,以公元1世紀最為可能(此時中國為東漢,也大約為佛教傳入中國時期),歌雖短小,卻為現存最古老保存最為完整的古希臘音樂,同時也應當是世界範圍內現存最早的音樂作品,意義非凡。經過重新編曲演唱後,附於專輯末尾。
