aworldonmyretine Vermillion has been able to explore an aside dimmension through electronic music. It's a meditation where the melodies can be listened through time, lost in a confusing space where past and future join in a confluence.

about

"He assumed the name Kukai as a Buddhist priest. Saint, miracle worker, and founder of the Shingon Buddhist sect. To Kπbπ Daishi are attributed a vast array of miracles and wonders. He established the worship of Konpira-daigongen in Kompira-san on Shikoku Island and founded the temple complex on Kπya-san. The facts of his life are dramatic enough, even without the mythical dimension. Kukai means "Air/Sea"
"During this period of private Buddhist practice, Kūkai had a dream, in which a man appeared and told Kūkai that the Mahavairocana Tantra is the scripture which contained the doctrine Kūkai was seeking. Though Kūkai soon managed to obtain a copy of this sūtra which had only recently become available in Japan, he immediately encountered difficulty."
