Goenka Chanting translation

Postby wizi » Tue Apr 03, 2012 10:14 am

The chanting translation on VRI website doesn't seem to be the literal translation of the morning chants by SN Goenka.

http://www.vridhamma.org/uploadedfiles/ ... ishweb.pdf

They seem to start off with some other sutta chanting before getting to the sutta itself. I am not sure.

Does anyone have the entire translation of his morning chants?

Thanks!

Dear Wizi,

It might be worth investigating this book:

Hi - there's also an mp4 (video) file available from this site, currently free of charge or on a donation basis. The description:

"In this download you hear S. N. Goenka chant the Pali suttas (discourses) and Hindi dohas (poems)from the ten-day course of Vipassana meditation while the original text and the English translation simultaneously display on the screen"

Here's the link, but I think you need the old student password to access that part of the site:

Thank you both for the links! Now I understand why his chanting doesn't sound anything like the written suttas at first. Does he start off with Hindi dohas and then go on to the Pali suttas? :anjali:
