Need help finding chants

Postby dhamma_newb » Sat Feb 04, 2012 5:23 pm

Hi,

I am looking for audio recordings of Pali chanting of "Going to the Three Refuges," "The Five Precepts," and the "Metta Sutta." I really like the audio recordings of Pali chanting done by the Monks of Metta Forest Monastery. The way they chant is calming, peaceful, and helpful in learning the chants. Are there any recordings of the chants I am looking for that sound similar to the chants done by the Monks of the Metta Forest Monastery? I wasn't able to find any of recordings of the chants I was looking for done by the Monks of the Metta Forest Monastery. Thank you.

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.

Hi Cittasanto,

I looked around and found audio recordings of the chants of the 3 refuges and five precepts (in Pali) and metta (in english) done by the Monks at Aruna Ratanagiri on Aruno.org. I don't think that the Monks at Metta Forest Monastery have audio recordings of the specific chants I was looking for but I could be mistaken. Thank you for the chant.org link it will be useful for helping me with correct pronunciation.

Metta,
Don

Karaniya metta sutta is there.

Karaniya metta sutta is there.

but if you learn how to pronounce the letters you can chant correctly, there are several ways to chant and so long as the pronounciation is roughly correct so it can be understood what word you are saying then there is no hard and fast way to chant, I like the Abhiyagiri chanting personally, but each to their own.

the only thing to remember when doing it is a group is to try to match the pace of the leader.
