Nice :slight_smile:

Internet is very touch and go here, and data limited. So not sure if I/we can join in. Will try!

Either way, me and another monk plus a resident are doing daily chanting and meditation in Albany, Western Australia, (https://bswa.org/location/bodhinyana-great-southern-monastery-project/) dedicated to all of you and everybody else!

Much metta to all :slight_smile:

The chanting is handed off from monastery to monastery, like runners handing off a baton, going around the world.

Brilliant.

It might be a nice gift, to identify in the chat the chants from time to time, and perhaps provide a link. Participating chanters can’t do it all.

Just a thought.

Super Cool! Well done to organise this.

Good points, thanks! The organizer advised chanters on what to chant:

“Ratana Sutta and Metta Sutta (as many times as you like) and if needed any other sutta such as Dhajagga, Girimananda, Bojjanga or another sutta at your discretion.”

Ratana: Discourse on the Treasures (aka Jewels Discourse) For overcoming disasters.

Mangala: Discourse on Blessings Recitation of what is true good fortune.

Dhajagga: The Banner’s Crest Recollection of Buddha Dhamma & Sangha for courage in times of fear.

Girimananda: With Girimananda. The 10 perceptions for overcoming illness.

Bojjhanga: 7 Factors of Enlightenment, referring to any of 3 nearly identical discourses recited to cure illness, better known as Gilana Suttas or Sick. (This links to 1st one or Pathāmagilanasutta, and the next two follow right after.) Recitation of the 7 Factors of Enlightenment for immediate healing.

Also, I’ll be surprised if no one does the Metta Sutta: Discourse on Friendliness Meditation

I felt thoroughly inspired and very grateful to be able to take part, especially as backend host for 8 hours while we travelled through Europe. Thank you for this great opportunity @Deepika and Damith!

sabbalokasaṅgīti streamed live for more than 24 hours, :blush: Youtube did not allow us to save the event, However, we managed to save it externally and working on a short video of the highlights of the event. Thank you all for the encouragement and having faith in coming onboard to go around the world in a virtual chariot.

As always much Metta to all
xoxo

Could we have another round? Maybe every weekend until this virulent storm is gone? :anjal:

I feel like that is a lot to ask of monastics to organize something like that every weekend! I appreciate the work they have put into adapting dhamma teaching to online platforms. You can find some here on this thread: Corona Dhamma - links to Dhamma resources. I know there are other monasteries and mindfulness groups practicing online now too if you check out your local groups. I think there are better options than listening to chanting all day once a week that is less logistically challenging for our monastic friends.
