Dhammapalam Gatha by Bodhivajra

By Candradasa on Thu, 25 Jul, 2013 - 14:40
A teaching of the Dharma chanted in Pali, the Dhammapalam Gatha translates as ‘verses that protect the truth’. Set to music, this is a piece that beautifully evokes the heart of the Buddha’s teachings.

Bodhivajra recorded this chant; listen for enjoyment, or listen to learn the words (reproduced below).

Full Moon Puja at the Vajrasana

By Candradasa on Tue, 26 Feb, 2013 - 15:49
