EVENING CHANTING

1. Morning chanting begins with salutation to the Triple Gem (Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha) (chant from start to finish- the evening chanting narration differs from morning chanting)

2. This is followed by recitation of the Precepts

  • if you are observing 5 precepts, chant Homage to the Buddha (pg 17), then Pancasila 5 Precepts (page 18- 19)
  • if you are observing 8 precepts, chant Homage to the Buddha (pg 17), then Attasila 8 Precepts (page 19)

3. Chant sutta selection (will be uploading sutta in stages)

4. End the morning chanting with transference of merits. You may select any one of the transferance of merits to recite.

Note: Khun Mae has always taught us to chant with our hearts, not merely using our brain. When we chant, use our hearts to understand the meaning of the chant. In most Thai monasteries, chanting is done twice a day- early in the morning (before almsround) and in the evening.
