7–1–7: Chanting and meditation service on Dhammanet, with love from Lokanta

Dear friends, to help with the stress and uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus worldwide, Ven Akaliko and I will be offering a short Dhamma service three times daily via live stream.

  • 7am
  • 1pm
  • 7pm

All times Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT), i.e. Sydney time.

We will be doing some Pali chanting and a short meditation, about 30 minutes in all. It’s a chance for you to check in, be still, and remind yourself that you’re not alone. The Buddha has given us the tools for coping with stress, let’s use them!

Subscribe or just drop by.

We may be offering additional teachings and courses, please stay tuned.

Thank you very much, Bhante. Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu. :anjal:
I found extremely calming. Just I needed now as I am struggling with my work and illness. And, may the power of Dhamma calm the world.

Isn’t it great to get this break in the middle of the day and know that others are sharing in it.

Was very cool seeing you there this morning! :grinning: :relieved: Who would have thought that isolation can lead to greater connection :rofl:

Likewise. :blush: These online gatherings with the ordained Sangha are so cool! I like it not to have a body. Just being there, no need to use words… :relieved:

Sadhu! Thank you Bhante. I’ve been tuned in nearly every 7-1-7. Best routine ever! It gives lightness & space to my days - a great antidote to the panic & hysteria out there!
Could you please say the names of the suttas you are chanting? After the itipiso part. I heard you say that at 1pm its the Ratana sutta but I cant work out which sutta you & Akaliko chant morning & evening. :pray:

Maybe I dont need to ask the bikkhus this question! Does anyone else know which suttas they are chanting morning & evening?
