Audio of Uposatha Precepts

Postby Buckwheat » Wed Jan 11, 2012 4:34 pm

Hello Everybody,

I am finding chanting along with audio files of great help, especially for getting the right rhythm and when to change pitch. Does anybody know where I can find an audio file of The Three Refuges and the Eight Precepts? I found something similar with the Five precepts, but I want something for Uposatha days.

Thanks,
Scott

Plenty of chanting audio here: http://mirror1.birken.ca/dhamma_talks/i ... _List.html

It's a huge list so just Ctrl+F and search-term "precepts" or Ctrl+F and search-term "three refuges" and there you are.

I believe a the forest sangha monasteries have them online but I do have a copy if you would like it just PM me your mail and I'll send it
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

I enjoy the chanting of Ajahn Sister Vayama, her 8 precepts are here: http://www.dhammaloka.org.au/downloads/ ... nting.html
Scroll down to "Taking the Three Refuges and Eight Precepts"
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Hopefully you found something in your mother tongue and not in Pāḷi only.

For me it's far more powerfull to recite in my mother tongue or at last in the second language I know a bit, that is english.

Especially all that exotism falls of and the rites-&-rituals-believe gets less nutrition.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." - Bhikkhu Anālayo

The links were great. I was lookimg for pali. I think about what the pali words mean so its not empty ritual. It almost feels a little more powerful in Pali.
