I've now visited this particular Vietnamese temple twice and I'm very interested in learning the chanting / prayers that are used, not just to the point of pronouncing them well (although I've been asked if I know Vietnamese already because I apparently didn't do too awful bad at it, LOL) but to the point where I can memorize some of them and understand their meanings.
I'm already doing this with certain chants in Pali, thanks to Wat Metta's comprehensive online resources in text and audio.
Thing is, I have not been able to find any similar resources from a Vietnamese source... so I'm curious if it would likely be offensive if I asked how I could obtain a copy of the book from which we have all been reciting for the purposes of both learning the basic format, translating, and eventually memorizing some of it? I'm not really looking for them to give me one, mind you, but to know who to contact so that I can buy one myself.
Is this wholly inappropriate or would it (hopefully) be seen in the way I intend it -- admiration and intense desire to learn?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
