    The PC fan is very quiet, but I could hear a clock ticking from the opposite end of the house, if there was a clock. Not enlightened. I just like silence.

    This song gets sticky in the old brainbox every once in a while, and this version in particular:

    The Metal Worker

    Our next to next door neighbor is a metal worker.
    He starts off with discarded oil drums and beats them into begging bowls for the Monks.
    This is a noisy profession. there are not many people left doing this.
    He used to start about 6:00 AM and beat until the mid afternoon.
    Lately he does not start until 8:00 or 9:00 and finished around noon.
    It is like living by train tracks, after a few years you hardly notice the noise.

    Nowadays, (unlike Cambodia), people bring their offering, (dana), to the temple.
    The Monks still must beg and they eat from their bowls, they do not take anything not personally offered to them.
    They must finish their meal before noon.

    There's a whole genre of music built around repurposed oil drums... centered in the Caribbean, but with influences from everywhere as is usually the case:

    Poya Day

    Today is Full Moon or Poya Day.
    It is a holiday in Buddhist countries.

    Our house is close to a Buddhist temple.
    At 5:00 AM the drumming started.
    After about fifteen minutes the drumming changed to chanting.
    The chanting is in Pali an ancient language related to Sanskrit.
    The subject of the chants is the Tipiṭaka or Pali Canon.
    The sound is beautiful.
    Later it will change back to drums with occasional lecturing.
    The lectures are in Sinhala, a modern language derived from Pali.
    This will go on all day long.
    A couple weeks ago it was Kathina, the end of rainy season.
    The drums and chanting lasted about four days.
