All Sound Is Mantra


My fourteen year old daughter spent the holidays jaunting around with me. During the course and scope of our diversions, I was introduced to the exquisitely lovely lyrics of the twenty-four year old Miss Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, otherwise known as Lady Gaga's recording of Bad Romance, to wit:
Ra ra-ah-ah-ah
Roma roma-ma
GaGa
Oh la-la

So, after hearing this for about the 500th time, I asked, "What is that supposed to mean?"

"Don't ask me," she replied. "You're the one who said all sound is mantra."

No word as yet regarding New York-born Lady Gaga's formal recognition as yet another manifestation of...... oh, lets take a wild guess, shall we?

She is certainly some sort of dakini. I'm certain Drukpa Kunley would recognize what type.

Haha Drukpa Kunley would certainly recognize her as a Dakini! :-P

I actually wrote a Dharma version of Bad Romance for a Tsog. My Lama was quite fond :-)
