    Interesting to hear another take on the English chanting. I've been trying to memorize the Japanese phonetic pronunciation lately. Oddly, I think that a non-understanding chant can be more body-mind melding than one in a native language, where we may get too wrapped up in the words themselves.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Thank you for sharing that John. Dis you also look at the Korean version, or the evening bell chant, very beautiful.

    I agree, but inversely, I find the English chanting can take away the "mystique," that sometimes makes one think they are "Zennier/ Yogi-er than thou." I find that, at least, it is important to understand what one is chanting about...

    But at the same time, I guess all sound is just vibration anyway, connected to a thought...

    ...or no-thought

    Yes, the vibration resonates through you as you chant.. but it is nice to know what it means!
