Thanissaro Bhikkhu Chanting

I think this is the right place to post this, seeing as it relates to Pali chanting. This is my first post on the site.
Been listening to some chanting by Ven. Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
I enjoy chanting, and Ven. Thanissaro's deep voice is very peaceful and meditative!
But I have a small Pali vocab. and understanding, although sometimes when I'm listening to chanting I will recognise a few words, get the general jist.
There's one section in the chanting (1:24 - 2: 26) I don't know what it is.
After a lot of googling and figuring stuff out this what I've got:

0:00 - 1-23
Homage & Refuges

1: 23 - 1:24
SACCAKIRIYA GATHA

NATTHI ME SARANAM ANNAM
BUDDHO ME SARANAM VARAM
ETENA SACCAVAJJENA
SOTTHI TE HOTU SABBADA
For me there is no other refuge
The Buddho truly is my refuge
By the speaking of this truth
Ever may you be in safety!

NATTHI ME SARANAM ANNAM
DHAMMO ME SARANAM VARAM
ETENA SACCAVAJJENA
SOTTHI TE HOTU SABBADA
For me there is no other refuge
The Dhamma truly is my refuge
By the speaking of this truth
Ever may you be in safety!

NATTHI ME SARANAM ANNAM
SANGHO ME SARANAM VARAM
ETENA SACCAVAJJENA
SOTTHI TE HOTU SABBADA
For me there is no other refuge
The Sangha truly is my refuge
By the speaking of this truth
Ever may you be in safety!


1:24 - 2: 26
??? would like to know what this bit is

2: 26 - 12:30
DHAMMACAKKAPPAVATTANA SUTTA
12:30 to end
JAYA PARITTA

thanks v. much :smile:

I have also noticed Ven. Thanissaro's chanting changes from the text I have at 14: 46

JAYA PARITTA - 'The Protective Chant of Victory'

Siri dhitimati te jo
jaya siddhi mahiddhi maha gunam
aparimita punnadhi – karassa
sabbantaraya nivarana samathassa,
Bhagavato, Arahato, Samma Sambuddhassa

Dwattimsa maha purisa lakkhananu bhavena,
asitya nubbyanjana lakkhananu bhavena,
atthutara sata mangala lakkhananu bhavena,
cabbanna ramsyanu bhavena,
ketumalanu bhavena,
dasa paramitanu bhavena,
dasa upa paramitanu bhavena,
dasa paramattha paramitanu bhavena,
sila samadhi pannanu bhavena,
Buddhanu bhavena, Dhammanu bhavena, Sanghanu bhavena,
tejanu bhavena,
idhyanu bhavena,
balanu bhavena,
neyya Dhammanu bhavena,
catura siti sahassa Dhammakkhandanu bhavena,
nawa lokuttara Dhammanu bhavena,

due to the power of his six-fold rays,
due to the power of His halos,
due to the power of His ten perfections,
due to the power of His ten subsidiary perfections,
due to the power of His ten absolute perfections,
due to His moral power, His power of meditative concentration,
and power of His wisdom,
due to the power of the Buddhahood, the Dhamma, the Sangha,
due to the power of His glory,
due to the power of His miraculous efficacy,
due to the power of His vigour,

due to the power of all perfections, due to the power of the Three Gems,
May all your sicknesses, sorrows troubles, griefs and despairs, be eradicated! May all your duties be fulfilled! May you live a hundred years!

PART 2

Pali
Akasa pabbata vana bhumi tataka gamga
maha samuddha arakkaka devata
sada tumhe anurakkhantu.....

(from here my text differs from the chanting)


sabba Buddhanu bhavena, sabba Dhammanu bhavena, sabba Sanganu bhavena,
Buddha ratanam, Dhamma ratanam, Sangha ratanam,
tinnam ratananam anubhavena,
caturasiti sahassa Dhammakkhandanu bhavena,
pitakattayanu bhavena,
jina savakanu bhavena,
sabbe te roga, sabbe te bhaya,
sabbe te antaraya, sabe te uppadava,
sabbe te dunnimitta, sabbe te avamangala vinasantu.

Ayu vaddhako dhana vaddhako, siri vaddhako, yasa vaddhako,
bala vaddhako, vanna vaddhako, sukha vaddhako hotu sabbada.
Dukkha, roga, bhaya vera – sokha sabbe uppadava
Aneka antarayapi Vinasantu ca tejasa

Jaya siddhi dhanam labham – sotthi bhagyam sukham balam
Siri ayu ca vanno ca – bhogam vuddhi ca yassava
Sata vassa ca ayu ca – jiva siddhi bhavantu te.

trans.
May these gods and deities who protect the skies, mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, seas and oceans protect you and me!.....


Due to the power of all the Buddhas, all the Dhammas, all the Sanghas, due to the power of the Three Gems, the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha,
due to the power of the eighty-four-thousand-fold Teaching,
due to the power of the Three Baskets,
due to the power of the Buddha’s disciples,
May all the diseases, all the fears, all the dangers,
all the menaces, all the inauspicious influences, all evil events be eradicated!

May you live long! May your wealth increase! May your happiness increase! May your glory increase! May your complexion be bright! May your comfort increase! Forever, may your sorrow, your illness, your fear, your hate, your despair, your dangers, your menaces get eradicated!

May your victory, wealth, profit, happiness, power, glory, complexion, possessions thrive! May you be glorious! May your life increase to a hundred years!


sorry if this is all a bit confusing! :rolleye:

:thanks:

An Invitation to the Devas
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... html#devas

Samantā cakkavāḷesu
Atrāgacchantu devatā
Saddhammaṃ muni-rājassa
Suṇantu sagga-mokkhadaṃ


From around the galaxies may the devas come here.
May they listen to the True Dhamma of the King of Sages,
Leading to heaven & emancipation.

Sagge kāme ca rūpe
Giri-sikharataṭe c'antalikkhe vimāne
Dīpe raṭṭhe ca gāme
Taruvana-gahane geha-vatthumhi khette


Those in the heavens of sensuality & form,
On peaks & mountain precipices, in palaces floating in the sky,
In islands, countries, & towns,
In groves of trees & thickets, around homesites & fields.

Bhummā cāyantu devā
Jala-thala-visame yakkha-gandhabba-nāgā
Tiṭṭhantā santike yaṃ
Muni-vara-vacanaṃ sādhavo me suṇantu


And the earth-devas, spirits, heavenly minstrels, & nagas
In water, on land, in badlands, & nearby:
May they come & listen with approval
As I recite the word of the excellent sage.

Dhammassavana-kālo ayam-bhadantā.
Dhammassavana-kālo ayam-bhadantā.
Dhammassavana-kālo ayam-bhadantā.


This is the time to listen to the Dhamma, Venerable Sirs.
This is the time to listen to the Dhamma, Venerable Sirs.
This is the time to listen to the Dhamma, Venerable Sirs.
