Recorded Pali Chants

Postby Moth » Sun Sep 26, 2010 7:31 pm

Hello, I am creating this topic to request audio samples of the basic pali chants, as I am trying to learn them. I apologize if this has already been covered in another thread. If anyone knows of any good links I would be very grateful. Thank you.
May you be happy. May you be a peace. May you be free from suffering.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

You might like to check out this part of the web site of the Samatha Trust - ... ion-chants. All of the participants are lay people but we have benefitted from instruction in chanting from monks, and some lay people, in various traditions of Theravada Buddhism (Cambodian, Thai, Sri Lankan, Burmese). Please let me know if you have any further queries. Best wishes, Charles

Thank you, Bhante! I think these were some of the recordings that I was listening to in Myanmar.
kind regards

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Hello fellow dhamma-farers :)

I was wondering if anyone knows where I could access a rendition (chanted in pali of course) of the 'Pañcavaggi Sutta: Five Brethren' (otherwise knows as: Anatta-lakkhana Sutta: The Discourse on the Not-self Characteristic), but in the Thai tradition? I would much appreciate it!

Here is a collection of Pali paritta chants in the Thai Dhammayut style:

They are accompanied by tantric yantra drawings which are supposed to have a magical protective effect and are also used for tattoos.
