These chants were recorded recently while leading a retreat in Malaysia, so they have a lovely sense of community, faith and devotion as well as profound Liberating Wisdom. They are shared here without any musical soundscape backdrop as an addition to our 'Formal Pali Chanting' Collection. But the Malaysian Chorus does give them a certain liveliness.
I am also sharing here one more Mantra chant rendition. The Medicine Buddha Mantra from the Tibetan Tradition. When a young Californian man who I have known since he was born came to visit Anandagiri recently, I discovered that he had attended a 'Choir School' and as such had trained his voice for several hours every day for more than a decade! This seemed like both a good opportunity and great choice for a chanting collaboration. So we had a late night chanting session in my monk's kuti (hut/cabin) and sent the recording file through cyberspace to the UK, where once again Christopher Conway deftly added his musical accompaniment in delicate layers. The wonders of modern digital music production!
There will be a PDF chanting book embedded on the page where the Three Cardinal Suttas are.
I hope that these Chants prove to be a nourishing support for your chanting, contemplating and meditating practices.
