unspoken wrote:I would like to start to chant myself at home. I've downloaded chant books online and the chant mp3 to learn. But the thing is the chant is too much, i meant too many suttas and i do not know which comes after which one and which is compulsory to chant? And some chant I see the text with the verse where a leader will chant. So how am I going to do it? Chant the leader role or just skip that part. I'm quite confuse and hope someone have a clear guidelines on which sutta should I chant after another and do I chant the part of the leader as well?
If you are chanting on your own just chant the leaders line yourself, although if you are using a recording of the chanting let the recording say the first line if you wish.
without knowing what chanting book you have downloaded I am not sure as to what you have, but don't worry about chanting everything all the time, just do one sutta at a time.
don't try to learn everything at once, just learn one then move on but don't forget to practice what you have previously learnt.
