Just as prostration, circumambulation and offerings are the physical expressions of one’s veneration for the Triple Gem, Buddhist chanting and recitation express the same feelings through words. This is similar to singing the national anthem and reciting the pledge of allegiance before the national flag as an expression of loyalty and respect for one’s nation. . Buddhist chanting and recitation take three major forms. Firstly, words or verses may be recited in praise of the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Secondly, the Buddhist may also recite the sermons of the Buddha. Thirdly, he may chant short phrases or syllables that symbolise certain teachings or qualities of the Buddha. These symbolic phrases or syllables are called mantras. When a Buddhist chants a mantra, it helps him to recall either the essence of a particular teaching or a special quality of the Buddha, such as His great compassion. . Therefore, chanting and recitation are not just acts of homage to the Triple Gem. They also remind the Buddhist of the ideal qualities of the Triple Gem that he strives to achieve. Furthermore, chanting and recitation also help him to concentrate and develop a calm and peaceful state of mind. . – Buddhism for Beginners .

Discourse of Atanatiya Sutta. Atanatiya Sutta is said to have been recited by Vaisravana, chief of Yakkhas, on behalf of four guardian gods of the cardinal points in the presence of the Enlightened One with a view to prevent hardship caused to four fold assembly i.e. Bhikkhus, Bhikkhunis, male and female lay devotees, from non-humans etc. People show special interest in listening to Atanatiya Sutta because of the belief that it is efficacious enough to dispel demons. Bhikkhus chant this Sutta with dignified fear. #atanatiyasutta #bhantedevananda #theravada #theravadachanting #chant #buddhistchanting #bhikkhu #buddha #buddhastatue #meditationcenter #buddhisttemple #pirith #paritta #tipitakachanting #dighanikaya
This is a still life I did using a small Buddha purchased in NYC, shot with my trusty Yashica film camera. I gave it to my colleague and dear friend, Theresa. She is fighting her second battle with cancer. A Buddhist, she has shared her insights on meditation with me. Now this photo hangs in the meditation room of her home. She has been off work for nine months. During that time, she has had two operations to remove tumours. She is battling more. Aside from her medication, she meditates & chants daily. It was good to see her warm smile, hear her lovely laugh, and feel the kindness of her hugs again. One day at a time... #fuckcancer #cancersucks #fightcancer #donate #showlove #careforthesick #buddhabowl #meditateforhealth #meditateforlife #buddhaphotography #buddhistphotography #buddhistchanting #bnwphotography #bnwphoto #bnestilllife #torontophotographer @thetorontostar @nowtoronto

Down to the side of Phnom Sampeou lies a hidden jungle temple that resembles a set from Tomb Raider. It’s also home to the twin caves of Flower Cave and Wind Cave. I found this woman monk inside Flower Cave, chanting Buddhist verses.

Bhante Devananda chanted Dhammaccakkappavattana Sutta on Esala Poya Day. The Sutta is the first teaching given by the Buddha after he attained enlightenment. The main topic of this sutta is the Four Noble Truths, which refer to and express the basic orientation of Buddhism in a formulaic expression. This sutta also refers to the Buddhist concepts of the Middle Way, impermanence, and dependent origination. #asalha #pirith #pirithceremony #parita #buddhateachings #mettabhavana #vihara #srilankatravel #buddhabless #dhammacakkappavattanasutta #theravada #bhikkhu #buddhisttemple #srilankatravel #srilankanphotography #poyaday
Buddhist monk making a beautiful butter sculpture for their special Buddhist ritual prayers. I heard that in earlier times in Tibet, monks use only pure butter for making such sculptures. It doesn't get melted there due very cold climate in Tibet. But now here in Nepal, India etc. The weather is hot. Therefore monks used to mixed some special thing with the butter so that it will not get melted easily. The butter is then mixed with different colors to decorate it. . . . . . . . . 👉 Follow:@tibetanencounter . . . . . . . . 🐝 Visit our website to learn more about our different Tibetan cultural tours at Pokhara, Nepal. . . . . . . . . 🐋 Share this with your friends and families. . . . . . . . . #monk #monastery #buttersculpture #buddhism #buddhistchanting #buddhistprayer #prayerchanting #mandala #sandmandala #offering #prayeroffering #mantra #buddhistmantra #meditation #mindfulnessmeditation #vipassana #vipassanameditation #enlightenment #karma #nirvana #tibetanrefugees #tibetanrefugeecamp #daytour #pokharadaytour #pokharasightseeing #thingstodoinpokhara #thingstoseeinpokhara #activitiesinpokhara #lakesidepokhara

Just one of them days, with my fave book @oprah “the things I know for sure” and some Palo santo and essential healing crystals ⭐️
I KNOW NOW how the blessing of the food sounds in Amaravati monastery. Chanting in Pali, the ancient language, close relative of Sanskrit, male and female voices weave together into the intricate sound prayer of gratitude. Equal in chanting, they are not equal in their rights to get the food. The monks go ahead of nuns. That is how it is done traditionally. Hmmm...doesn't feel right for me. What if they mix and go one after another - one man, one woman....so there is no male dominance, no gender superiority, we are in the 21st century!....but that is my thinking)). Little school kids are mesmerised, (some of them:-)), they are introduced to an exotic world of colours, clothes, sounds and images. This may trigger their curiosity about the whole thing how our mind works and what is this Buddhist philosophy about. Or it may not.... May the food donated and cooked today, be healthy and bring exquisite nourishment to our body minds. May there will be enough for everyone and nobody will go hungry. Especially children. #buddhistphilosophy #blessings #monasticlife #richsoil #palilanguage #sacredchanting #buddhistchanting #mysteriesofthemind #foodforthought #genderequality

Indiana Buddhist Temple Location: Roughly 25 minutes Southeast of Fort Wayne, 7528 Thompson Road, Hoagland, IN 46745 The Indiana Buddhist Temple is a temple in Hoagland, Indiana, on the first floor of the Abbott’s house, where it hosts a variety of services, including a meditation service on “Mindfulness of Breathing.” Before and after meditation, worship leader Bhante Devananda does a chant in Pali, which is the Buddhist language. Meditation is done sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and listening. The meditation time consists of sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and listening to a few instructions: “Let go of school; work; responsibilities; negative emotion. You cannot take this with you to achieve happiness.” Or “Take one mindful breath in…. and let a mindful breath out.” (A mindful breath is a deep breath that you concentrate on really feeling.) Meditation may sound intimidating at first, and in some ways it is. Even regulars say you can meditate for years before you’re able to do it properly. But while many who attend the Temple’s services are Buddhist, you don’t have to be Buddhist to meditate. Buddhism can be more about the philosophy of happiness, peacefulness, and kindness, worship leaders say. People of all religions (or lack thereof) attend meditation services. On our visit, we met a woman who was Catholic, and a man who was Agnostic. Bhante Devananda, who was doing the chanting and blessing, blessed us a few times with the phrase, “May you be well, happy, and peaceful.” Both Bhante Devananda and the regular worshippers welcome to newcomers into the community, with food and tea, offered knowledge, and invitations. #meditation #mindful #mindfulness #mindfullnessmoment #mindfulnessmeditation #buddhisttemple #buddhistmonk #mettabhavana #metta #lovingkindness #lovingkindnessmeditation #indianabuddhisttemple #bhantedevananda #indiana #fortwayne #buddhism #buddhistchant #buddhistchanting #theravadachanting #chant #pali #tipitakachanting http://www.inputfortwayne.com/features/city-of-chruches-worship-centers.aspx

"I don't envision a single thing that, when developed & cultivated, brings about such happiness as the mind.

OM MANI PADME HUM...Compassionate Buddha Mantra. This mantra is that of Avalokiteshvara or the Buddha of compassion according to Tibetan Buddhism. Avalokiteshvara is a Buddha form who represents compassion, and his mantra also symbolizes that quality. Avalokiteshvara means “The Lord Who Looks Down in compassion”. And the Dalai Lama points out that just as a jewel can relieve poverty, so the compassionate mind takes away the poverty of unhappiness that exists in the world and replaces it with the wealth of wellbeing. This is probably the best known Buddhist mantra chanted across the world. #ommanipadmehum #ommanipemehung #mantra meditation #istanbul #istanbulmantrameditation #istanbulmantras #Buddha #bodhisattva #Tibet #tibetanbuddhism #compassion #compassionatebuddha #tibetanmantra #jewelofthelotus #dalailama #tashidelek #lotus #jeweloflotus #buddhism #buddhistchant #nepal #tibetanchants #buddhistchanting #karmapa #gururinpoche #padmasambhava #tibet @tinaturner #tashidelek #buddha #siddhartha #shakyamuni
