8 and 10 precepts - Pali mp3?

Postby proto » Fri Jan 29, 2010 12:40 am

Sawatdee,

Does anyone know a site where one can download an audio file with the 8 and/or the 10 novice precepts chanted in Pali?. Preferably of the kind where a leader chants one followed by an audience repeating it, where-after the leader chants the next one, etc --- perfect for learning. I've got the words in writing and the 5 precepts in chanting already. (These later can be downloaded from http://www.buddhanet.net/audio-chant.htm if interested).

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.

Hi Chris
I have a feeling the OP link is the BSWA track?
I am sure that is where I downloaded it ages ago?

Thanks for the link - even better than what I were looking for.

There seems to be some "glitches" in the chants in the soundtracks on both the bswa-version and the version on chantpali.org. On the buddhanet.net page there is a technically perfect version of the 5 precepts (nbr 4 from the top) which also illustrates that there are several different styles of Pali chanting.

I know of three different styles, sri lankan, thai, and burmese but think there may be one style in every country Theravada has developed through history that has or had its own independant language? maybe a more knowledgable friend may be able to clarify better, but the three mentioned are the main ones people talk about at least.
