No suttas in there.
Starts with homage, refuges, then:
Some of A Luang Por Toh chant (Chinabunchorn Gatha), I'm told...
Jaya Gāthā http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... .html#jaya
Bhavatu sabba-maṅgalaṃ... http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... ml#bhavatu

A monk and some of the lay people from my Wat did something similar when the Dalai Lama was here last month. He likes to start with some Pali chanting...

Many Theravadin, especially the close minded, hypocritical ones, don't know that Vajrayana refers to Tipitaka too.
Both traditions are based on the same thing. The Dalai Lama has no problem chanting together. Doesn't matter who is in front of whom.

Good point. It is clear from this (and at the talk I went to) that the Dalai Lama is familiar enough with those Pali chants to be able to join in...

Thanks all. One thing I was sure was that it was NOT the Heart Sutra.
