Thai Buddhist Chanting


Recommended Posts

I can't reach it today either, but I can traceroute to it. Maybe a server problem. Anyway, it's an excellent site. The owner seems to have a great eye for clear, well-written stuff (mostly Theravada) that's ideal for relative beginners.

Nammo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambhudasa (3X) Honor to Him, the Blessed one, the Worthy One, the fully Enlightened One The Three Refuges Buddham saranam gachami I take refuge in the Buddha

Yep, I meant Dhammayut. I notice the the older monks try to keep it going, but it doesn't seem to be catching on with the younger generation, the exception being those studying for the pali exams.

Hi everyone,   I know this thread is really old, but I'll be getting married in February and if anyone knows what prayers will be said by everyone, I'd be extremely grateful! It being my own

You learnt it with a thai accent :o

In Pali it's "Nammo Tassa Bhagvato Arahato Samma Sumbuddhasa".

The translation we use is "Homage to the Blessed Noble and Perfectly Enlightened One".

Thats tremendous, Thank you so much. It has answered a question that I have had for many years.

Once again Thankyou

I have attached two images of Buddha, I will get a fuller picture rather than just the torso and head.

It may sound strange but he smiles at certain times which is wonderful to see.

Kind regards

Here's another link for the BuddhaSasana page:

http://www.buddhanet.net/budsas/ebud/ebidx.htm

And the one file directly concerned with chanting:

http://www.buddhanet.net/budsas/ebud/chant-bswa/chantbook.htm

I'll pin this topic to the top of the Buddhism forum here so that anyone interested in chanting can find it easily.

Manual of Buddhist Study

through

The Sacred Book of Buddhist Chants

Pali -Thai-English Translation

-------------------

A very good book, I bought it DK Chiangmai.

My wife and me have sometimes evening chanting with this book.

What is the reasoning behind the chants?

One part of the chanting is magic incantation.

Not bad not good. You give a name to your new born son. It's magic too.

The other part is (required you understand the meaning) that you confirm yourself about what is good.

A morning chanting of the traffic code before you take your car to go to your job will save many living beings.

Some reasons for chanting....

After the Buddha's Parinirvana they kept the memory of the teachings alive by chanting them.

Chanting is a way of showing respect to the triple-gem.

Chanting can prepare a 'rough stone' for more intensive practice like meditation.

Chanting can ward off problems, show love and metta to other beings, protect one from dangers, cause other beings to act kindly towards us, share our merits with other beings, cause enemies to forgive us, help others to turn around and become better people.
