Chanting for Peace in the World

?? chants logged so far (goal: 100,000)

During the Covid pandemic chanting for world peace and healing is more important than ever. The reality of Covid is that if we don’t peacefully share resources (vaccines) the virus will keep on mutating and making the hoarding pointless. Please continue to chant… lets get to 100k!"

As when we did the removing obstruction ceremonies for our Buddha Hall 5-6 years ago, we are aiming to chant 100,000 chants but this time it will be a mixture of chants. We will continue chanting past November 3rd until our goal is reached.

As an example: If 100 members each chant 108 chants a day it will take just over nine days to achieve the 100,000!

Suggested Chanting Services- Prajna Paramita x 2, the Kanzeon (either in English or Japanese) x 27, and the Sho Sai Myo Kichijo Dharani (removing disasters) x 7; totals 36 chants, and if you do that 3 times a day =108. If 100 people participate for 10 days during and after the election we could achieve our goal!

If you need to reference the chants, they are available on the chanting section of our website.

When you finish your chanting for the day please log it on to our chant meter to allow us keep track of how we are doing:

Here is a Eko you can use after each service:

We pray for peace in the World, We pray that good may overcome evil. We pray for the cessation of violence and for the welfare of beings in all realms.
