English Chanting

English Chanting

Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche said that chanting is an important element in Tibetan Buddhist rituals because it allows us to reflect on the meaning; it brings bliss to the senses and thereby develops clarity and stability in the experience; it also helps us memorize the words—memorized practice is so much deeper than practice that is read from a text, there is no comparison between the two.

The text has to be condensed in order to fit the 9 or 7 syllable format of Tibetan verse. The sadhanas include Tibetan phonetics, literal translation and chanting verses. People really enjoy chanting in a language they understand, it opens the heart.

If you have a good internet connection you can listen to each recording by pressing the play symbol or download them to listen offline. To download a recording, RIGHT CLICK over the download button to the right hand side of the recording and choose ‘download linked file’ or equivalent. The download should then begin.

To access the text that corresponds to each chant just do a normal click over where it says ‘view text’ and it will appear. You can also download it from the viewing mode.
