Pali Chanting in the Theravada Buddhist Tradition. I go to the Buddha as my refuge. I go to the Dhamma – The Teachings, as my Refuge.
I go to the Sangha – The Community, as my Refuge. For the second time I go to the Buddha as my Refuge. For the third time I go to the Buddha as my Refuge. I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from destroying living beings. I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from taking things not given. I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from sexual misconduct. I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from false speech. I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from liquor causing intoxication and heedlessness.
I undertake to observe the Five Precepts to the best of my ability. He is the Holy One, fully enlightened, endowed with clear vision and virtuous conduct, sublime, the Knower of the worlds, the incomparable leader of men to be tamed, the teacher of gods and men, enlightened and blessed. Translation – Homage to the Teachings The Dhamma of the Blessed One is perfectly expounded; to be seen here and how; not delayed in time; inviting one to come and see; onward leading to Nibbana ; to be known by the wise, each for himself.
Bufdha – Homage to the Disciples of the Buddha The Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples has entered on the good way; the Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples has entered on the straight way; the Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples has entered on the proper way, that is to say; the Four Pairs of Men, the Gtha Types of Persons; the Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples is fit for gifts, fit for hospitality, fit for offerings, and fit for reverential salutation, as the incomparable field of merit for the world.
Thus have I heard: Now gattha the night was far spent, a certain deity, whose surpassing splendour illuminated the entire Jeta Grove, came to the presence of the Exalted One, and, drawing near, respectfully saluted Him and stood at one side. Standing thus, he addressed the Exalted One in verse: Many deities and men, yearning after good, have pondered on Blessings.
Pray, tell me the Highest Blessing!
Not to associate with fools, to associate with the wise, and to honour those who are worthy of honour – this is the Highest Blessing. To reside in a suitable locality, to have done meritorious actions in the past, and to set oneself in the right course – this is the Highest Blessing. Vast-learning, perfect handicraft, a highly trained discipline, and pleasant speech – this is the Highest Blessing. The support of father and mother, the cherishing of wife and children, and peaceful occupations – this is the Highest Blessing.
Liberality, righteous conduct, the helping of relatives, and blameless actions – this is the Highest Blessing. To cease and abstain from evil, forbearance with respect to intoxicants, and steadfastness in virtue – this is the Highest Blessing.
Reverence, humility, contentment, gratitude and the opportune hearing of the Dhamma – this is the Highest Blessing. Patience, obedience, sight of the Samanas Sanctified Onesand religious discussions at due seasons – this is the Highest Blessing. He whose mind does not flutter by contact with worldly contingencies, Sorrowless, Stainless, and Secure – this is the Highest Blessing.
To them, fulfilling matters such as these, every-where invincible, in every way moving happily – these are the Highest Blessings. Discourse on Loving Kindness.
He who is skilled in his good and who wishes to attain that state of Calm should act thus: Gatya should be able, upright, perfectly upright, obedient, gentle, and humble. Contented, easily supportable, with few duties, of light livelihood, controlled in senses, discreet, not imprudent, not be greedily attached to families.
He should not commit any slight wrong such that other wise men might censure him. May all beings be happy and secure. May their minds be wholesome.
Whatever living beings there biddha Let not one deceive another nor despise any person whatever in any place. In anger or ill will, let him not wish any harm to another. Just as a mother would protect her only child even at the risk of her own life, even so let him cultivate a boundless heart towards all beings. Let his thoughts of boundless love pervade the whole world: This, they say, is the Budxha Conduct.
Not falling into error, virtuous and endowed with insight, he gives up attachment to sense-desires. He will surely not be born in any womb again. Translation – The Jewel Discourse. This Discourse was delivered by the Buddha in the city of Vesali whose citizens appealed to the Buddha for help, being afflicted by famine, pestilenee and disturbances from vanxana spirits. As a mark of protection for the people of Vesali, the Buddha delivered this discourse after which the evil spirits were exorcised and the pestilence subsided.
Whatever beings are here assembled, whether terrestrial or celestial, may they all be happy! Moreover may they attentively listen to my words!
Accordingly give good heed, all ye beings! Show your love to the human beings who, day and night, bring offerings budeha you. Wherefore guard them zealously. Whatever treasure there be either here or in the world beyond, or whatever precious jewel in the precious jewel.
By this truth may there be happiness! There is nought comparable with the Dhamma.
Buddha Vandana Gatha
Verily, in the Dhamma is this precious jewel. That Sanctity praised by the Buddha Supreme is described as “concentration without buddna. There is nought like that Concentration. Those Eight Individuals, praised by the virtuous, constitute four pairs.

They, the worthy of offerings, the disciples of byddha Welcome One, – to these gifts given yield abundant fruit. Verily, in the Sangha is this precious jewel.
With steadfast mind, applying themselves thoroughly in the Dispensation of Gotama, exempt from passionthey have attained to “that which should be attained”, and, plunging into the Deathless, they enjoy Peace obtained without price. Just as a firm post, sunk in the earth, cannot be shaken by the four winds; even so do I declare him to be a righteous person gatya thoroughly perceives gathw Noble Truths.
Verily, in the Sangha is the precious jewel. Those who comprehend clearly the Noble Truths, well taught by Him of wisdom deep, do not, however exceeding heedless they may be, undergo an eighth birth. For him with the acquisition of Insight, three conditions come to nought – namely, self-illusion, doubt, and indulgence in wrongful rites and ceremonies, should there be any. From the four states of misery, he is absolutely freed, and is incapable of committing the six heinous crimes.
Whatever evil deed he does, whether by deed, word or thought, he is incapable of hiding it; for it hath been said that such an act is impossible for one who has seen the Path. Like unto the woodland groves with blossomed tree tops in the first heat of the summer season, hath the sublime doctrine, that leads to Nibbana, been taught for the Highest Good. Verily, in the Buddha is this precious jewel.
By this truth may there be happiness. Their past is extinct, a fresh gtha there is not, their minds are not gath to a future gagha, their desires grow not – those wise ones go out even as this lamp. We beings here assembled, whether terrestrial or celestial, salute the Accomplished Buddha, honoured by gods and men. May there be happiness! We beings here assembled, whether terrestrial or celestial, salute the Accomplished Dhamma, honoured by gods and men. We beings here assembled, whether terrestrial or celestial, salute the Accomplished Sangha, honoured by gods and men.
