    General CommentThis can be interpreted as just the song by this name, or the entire album. I will focus on the album rather than submit lyrics for the rest of the songs on this album.

    This is my favorite Kitaro album, by far. The music and flow are both excellent. I won't claim to know what it is about, but it definitely adds meaning listened to as one extended song rather than eight (or however many there are) shorter songs.

    Highlights:
    Mandala
    Scope
    Chant From the Heart
    Wind of Youth
    Kokoro (perhaps my favorite Kitaro song).

    I also liked Dance of the Sarasvati, but not nearly as much as the above five. Crystal Tears and Planet seem like filler, which is why this album needs to be listened to straight through. This gives them purpose, which they don't have on their own.

    I think that the only improvement to this album would be to add Water of Mystery (another long Kitaro piece), which is slightly in the same vein as this song.

    I guess that I interpret this album as being about the follies of religion, and acting based solely on religion, but that is probably because I wrote a poem using the image of crystal tears to this purpose.
