In Buddhist devotional ritual, we chant ancient verses in Sanskrit or Pali – the language the Buddha would have spoken. At our Centre, we usually do this in call and response and there is never any pressure to join in. These two traditional chants are examples of those used within the Triratna Buddhist Community.
