Thai Buddhist Chanting


Recommended Posts

Anyone know if there's phonetic transcription of the main Thai Buddhist prayers you can get? Is there a book or website which has prayers listed in Thai or Pali with Romanised phonetics? Thanks.

we had this in a thread some where once try the language forum i htink i asked it there, and these two sets are what i organized by snipping from various places for the english, pali/thai and transliteration... i saved it in Word form.... tis is the set that my boyfriend says every night and had me print it so i could learn it and say it with him (he's ex monk) for me it was hard to learn by rote, i had to see it....

we also add our own 'prayer/wishes' every evening; only when we are in a relaxed mood ; he usually meditaties also for a short time after...

Nice one Bina... :o

The Mahamakut Buddhist Bookshop opposite Wat Bowon in Bangkok also carries various books with transliterated and translated Pali verse.

Is that the one in Banglampoo near K.S. road?

You can also get information from Wat Mahathat (Wat Mahadathu) Section 5 near the Grand Palace

I met Phrasuputh Chainakom (Kosalo) there and got books in both Thai and English from him .... inluding MANY of the chants translated. He also gave me a couple of MP3 discs etc <yes I made a small donation>

Strangely we both have ties in Denver Colorado as he was a monk there in the past at the Thai Temple

Pali/English text and MP3 files are available at BuddhaSasana.

Very interesting website, hadn't come across it before. Nice encapsulated explanations of Theravada Buddhism as well. The one by Maung Kyauk Seinn was especially informative.

The chanting section reminded me that Thammayut monks at Wat Bowon once told me that in Thailand there is a difference between what monks in the Thammayut sect chant and what monks in the Mahanikai sect chant. I didn't hear what the differences were, but got the impression it was not the words that differed but the selection of verses for morning, evening and fortnightly chanting.

I can't reach it today either, but I can traceroute to it. Maybe a server problem. Anyway, it's an excellent site. The owner seems to have a great eye for clear, well-written stuff (mostly Theravada) that's ideal for relative beginners.

You learnt it with a thai accent :o

In Pali it's "Nammo Tassa Bhagvato Arahato Samma Sumbuddhasa".

The translation we use is "Homage to the Blessed Noble and Perfectly Enlightened One".

Thats tremendous, Thank you so much. It has answered a question that I have had for many years.

Once again Thankyou

I have attached two images of Buddha, I will get a fuller picture rather than just the torso and head.

It may sound strange but he smiles at certain times which is wonderful to see.

Kind regards

Manual of Buddhist Study

through

The Sacred Book of Buddhist Chants

Pali -Thai-English Translation

-------------------

A very good book, I bought it DK Chiangmai.

My wife and me have sometimes evening chanting with this book.

What is the reasoning behind the chants?

One part of the chanting is magic incantation.

Not bad not good. You give a name to your new born son. It's magic too.

The other part is (required you understand the meaning) that you confirm yourself about what is good.

A morning chanting of the traffic code before you take your car to go to your job will save many living beings.

Some reasons for chanting....

After the Buddha's Parinirvana they kept the memory of the teachings alive by chanting them.

Chanting is a way of showing respect to the triple-gem.

Chanting can prepare a 'rough stone' for more intensive practice like meditation.

Chanting can ward off problems, show love and metta to other beings, protect one from dangers, cause other beings to act kindly towards us, share our merits with other beings, cause enemies to forgive us, help others to turn around and become better people.
