Morning Chanting

In Thai temples, the monks would chant the morning chanting/morning service before going for almsround. With the availability of chanting both in video and transcripts, it is easy for us to learn the chanting.

The morning chanting which I have been taught contained the following. This can be chanted by lay persons at home each morning:

  • PART A: The Standard Morning Chanting
  • PART B: Buddha Jaya Mangala Gatha
  • PART C: Ovadapatimokkha
  • PART D: Transference of merits
  • PART E: Loving kindness and taking leave

I have compiled the resources available from the internet. For those who are interested, you can learn to chant with the help of the transcript and videos. I have created a playlist for the list of videos below to enable you to play the videos continuously and in sequence.
