    The roar of a tiger

    Taisen Deshimaru. His chanting pierces me to the bone.

    Just sharing...

    Yes, sensei as we used to call him had an incredible voice, he also had a very strong take on the dharma, down to earth and broad. Compared to him my voice is the voice of a running chicken :lol: . His style inspired my chanting although i sometimes think these day he was a bit over the top and one can find other ways to sing. And I would not recommand anybody to copy this, you could dp a lot of harm to your voice amd throat. Being natral is best.

    May i add that his way of singing the fukanzazengi is very original and breaking with the rhythmical recitation of Zen temples.

    Yes master Taigu... but sometimes I wonder if I even SPEAK (let along sing) with my natural voice, sometimes it just feels wrong, a tone that is not mine.... I donīt know

    His voice carries a lot of gravitas, which is good in other venues like kabuki or poetry reading, but for chanting I think it is a little much, as pleasant as it is to hear.

    On the other hand, my voice is about 3 octaves higher than it is in my head, so hearing it reciting the Heart Sutra must make people think of Hello Kitty rather than gravitas :mrgreen: (I used to be a college radio DJ, and would hate it whenever I heard recordings of myself -- is that a progressive music dj, or the host of Kids' Hour? :mrgreen: )

    In terms of chanting, I haven't heard myself for the above mentioned reasons but it doesn't feel unnatural. I just feel like my voice doesn't strike a low enough note or resonate with much strength. But perhaps these are of less importance than the virtue of just doing it with the right mindfulness.

    Deshimaru had a powerful voice. One of my practices has included repeated recitation of Hannya Shingyo while sewing to this:

    also this one is nice (not Deshimaru Roshi):

    I've converted both to MP3 and just put them on loop, although I don't try to copy him by any means.

    Gassho,

    I often miss hearing the chanting of my recently-deceased teacher, Myo Ji Sunim. The closest thing to it I've heard is in recordings of Seung Sahn Seon Sa Nim:

    Strong voice, strong personality and more important : natural personality

    Thanks SonofRage. To be honest I never heard Seung Sahn chanting before.
