Chanting

Postby bodom » Thu Jan 15, 2009 8:58 pm

I was wondering if any members here chant at home as part of your practice? The only chanting i do is at the local Thai temple but was thinking about bringing it home as part of my practice.

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Hi
not me I only chant on retreat but I have thought about it, but feel it may distract from the purpose?
I do on occasion play a reading from the suttas but that is about it!

Keep It Simple Stupid is the motto and I try to keep to it :rolleye:

:bow:


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
