More info: Albert Goldman's bio of Elvis on p.366 states that Elvis loved The Sound of the Silence so much he would read from it onstage and that he named his gospel group Voice.

Sure Mika, just note that the painting is by Kim Haueter, that it can also be found on her website, and that I own it.

Let's be friends!

Go ahead! Copy it! Google my name and you'll get the Dharmakirti faculty list and you'll find out how to get in touch with me so we can trade Elvis stories outside of 

I teach tomorrow at Dharmakirti and I still have some prep to do so I'll sign off now.

If you ever make it over this way, let me husband and I will do lunch or something with you and your wife. :)

Elvis told his hairdresser that even though he sang a lot of Christian hymns, his own personal philosophy was embodied in The Voice of the Silence. He gave copies to many of his close friends. This painting is by my dear friend the San Francisco artist Kim Haueter. It is not as Buddhist as The Voice, but it definitely has Indian spiritually in it along with some pungent satire.
