At the Grand Theatre of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, a live concert, Hua-Yen reveals Insights of Interbeing through Sounds. Mind and Light, the key words of Buddhist philosophy, are brought to life by Naamyam – the Cantonese narrative singing performance – reinterpreting the signature theme songs from the theatre series Hua-yen Sūtra: Minds as Skillful Painter, The Ten Directions Are But One Thought, Song of Meditation, etc. Hua-yen offers multiple interpretations of the ancient Siddhaṃ script through a live performance that includes the art forms of singing, chanting, Cantonese Naamyam, and a live band playing Chinese and Western music, giving shape to the Hua-yen Avatamsaka world with a diversity of sounds and lights.
