Wagner Sutra

P. M. Doolan has left a new comment on your post "Wagner and the Tantric Orchestra":

I only came across your blog entry today, but I had posted an article "Wagner and Buddhism, Tristan and Isolde" on my blog two days ago - what a coincidence. It might interest you to know that Wagner first played some chords of Tristan on piano in the Villa Wesendonck in Zurich (where I live) and the Villa Wesendonck today is the home to the biggest collection of Tibetan Buddhist art in all of Europe.
More Buddhism from Jonathan Harvey in Wagner Dream. Then there is the connection between Wagner and the Cathars...

Header image has nothing to do with the Villa Wesendonck. I photographed the Richard Cole print against the background of the book Tibet - Life, Myth, Art by Michael Willis before tweaking the colours. Photo is (c) On An Overgrown Path 2010.

In case you are interested, I have edited and expanded my post on Wagner and Buddhism into a longish (4,000 words) article called Wagner in Zurich: http://www.pauldoolan.com/2011/03/wagner-in-zurich.html
