BUDDHIST PALI CHANTING New Year Paritta Auspicious Protective Chanting
For New Year at Dhammagiri, Ajahn Dhammasiha and Ajahn Moneyyo chant Paritta.
These auspicious, protective verses are 2,500 years old, reaching back to the Buddha himself, and are recited in Pali, the language spoken by the Buddha. Paritta is believed to help ward off misfortune and disease, and to attract blessings and good fortune to anyone listening with an attentive mind.
Ajahn Moneyyo leads the chanting, starting with the solo invitation to all devas (angels) and benificent spirits to attend and listen to the protective chanting.
