Description

This year's Robe Offering Ceremony at Dhammagiri included a recitation of auspicious protective chants ('Paritta') in Pali language. These teachings have been preserved directly from the Buddha's lips by the monks and nuns, and faithfully learned by heart, recited and transmitted virtually unchanged in the same language for 2,500 years!


Paritta Recitation, if listened to mindfully and with a pure heart filled with faith, is believed to provide protection from all kinds of misfortune, and to bring good fortune to the listeners. Even if one can't understand the language, many listeners experience a great sense of calm, ease and inspiration during the chanting.


The paritta is chanted by our sangha of 4 bhikkhus:

  1. Ajahn Dhammasiha
  2. Ajahn Dhammadharo (who also does the invitation to all devas [angels] at the beginning)
  3. Ven Moneyyo (who is leading the chanting)
  4. Ven Dantacitto


You can find the Paritta chants in the Amaravati Chating Book Vol 2 here:
