Sutra Languages

When chanting, is it okay to chant different sutra in different languages or it is best to stick to one language? Or it does not matter?

I am abit confused

Re: Sutra Languages

Hi V - power, great that you have the interest to learn mantra. let see i can help you.
If you just want to learn the chant out of interest, any language is ok.
if you want to have it chant with energy, it is best you can chant in correct language , that all depend on what the purpose.

Re: Sutra Languages

Good, it is ok. xingjing i also in chinese, is just that the last paragraph i using sanskit. Because, that is the most important phase, By using that you can prevent any negetive energy, act as a boundary seal for safety, clean you room from bad qi.

The Heart Sutra is the shortest and the most popular sutra in Buddhism. The six hundred volumes of the Maha Prajna Sutra are summarized by the Diamond Sutra in around 5000 words, and the Diamond Sutra is summarized by the Heart Sutra in around 250 words. The Heart Sutra is regarded as the summation of the wisdom of Buddha. It expresses perfectly the insight attained by non-attachment, the doctrine of emptiness.

Chant the mantra this way:

GATE GATE PARAGATE,
PARASAMGATE, BOHDI SVAHA.

[Gone, Gone, Gone beyond, Gone completely beyond, Enlightenment, Hail!]


Most important thing to do after the chanting. Did you dedicate? 回向?

灵宗弟子 added 1 Minutes and 19 Seconds later...

Re: Sutra Languages

every chant gain some merit credit, we must share the credit and not selfish.有舍才有得。

例如:“愿将此诵经(念佛)的功德回向给我的母亲,愿她能早日康复,不再受疾病之苦……”,并没有固定的行 文,只要诚心,无论你怎么说,怎么回向,佛菩萨都会感应的。

or even a simple one. [i wishto delicate this chanting merit to xxx hope that she is well,xxxxxx.]

NO , you can 回向 to your own yuan qin zai zu, chan shen ling.

Do i look like joking? imagine you have your own 身业, daily you chant, do good deed to reduce your 业, and at same to you commit 口业, then you are reducing or increasing?
善护口业–不妄语、不恶口、不两舌、不绮语 .在佛教“身口意”三业中,口业尤为重要。口业的果报可说是非常的厉害。而且,在我们身、口、意三业之中, 口业最容易造。

In forum alway saw ppl post wording to scold, critis other. this is also a 口业. 奉劝大众切莫造口业尤其重要。

If you alway commit 口业, then there is no need to do any more chanting, the merit earn cant overcome your 口业.

净口业真言:这是清净(消灭)口业的咒。

南無佛﹐ 南無法﹐ 南無僧。 南無十方法界三世诸佛十方三寶。 天地父母﹐ 南無本師釋迦牟尼佛 ﹐ 觀音菩薩。

弟 子 ﹕XXX 住 宅 ﹕ XXX。。。
祈求大慈大悲觀音菩薩做主﹐弟子誦此心经以消自身業障。

觀自在菩薩﹐行深般若波羅蜜多時。。。

弟 子 ﹕XXX 誦此心经之神咒力以消自身業障以及迴向往生X 門堂上歷代之先祖也迥向父母身体安康﹐一却平安顺利。

I am using the chinese version of Heart Sutra by Imei Ooi..

My chinese very cannot make it.. hard to follow and some parts too fast and also I dont know how to read some words.. LOL

and the 回向 is in chinese too, so I have trouble reading it.. can do it in simple chinese?

I speak better in chinese but write/read better in english, thus it is quite hard for me to read all the chinese words...

Re: Sutra Languages

Chanting sutra is better to chant in a language that you understand as it is a teaching.
You cant learn anythg from a sutra if you cannot understand a single word that is trying to teach you.

Om Mani Padme Hung is not a sutra but a mantra
Mantra is needed to recite in its original lanaguage as you need the sound of each word to gain its benefits.

eg. Xin Jing is a sutra which teaches emptiness so is better to under it in its proper translation to the language you understand.

not really correct

as in buddhism, we practice ultimately is our wish to save the universe
all samsaric being.

Even you dedicate the merits to ones parents, it should not stop there.
The merits should also to dedicate to all sentient beings...
and to oneself to achieve buddhahood to lead the sentient being....

buddhism dedication is veru eloborate and should not be confine to a small segment as oneself or ones parents.........................


but then merits by itself needs visualisation added to your recital also.....
