Audio of recitation of the Vinaya-pitakas's Mahavagga

Postby sphairos » Thu Aug 29, 2013 9:52 pm

Hey guyz,

I need audio recordings of the modern traditional recitation of the first part (Mahākhandhaka) of Vinaya's Mahāvagga (in Pāli, of course). Has anyone heard anything about such recitations? I would be happy if someone provided me with links to those recordings / sent me the files.

I never heard of any such thing. It seems improbably that any such recordings exist. Why do you need them?

Like Ven. Pesala, I’ve never heard of any tradition of memorizing and reciting this text. The only monks I can imagine doing so are those (exceedingly few) who aspire to be vinayadharas. Still, if this is what you want to do, perhaps you could make a start by memorizing those portions of the Mahākhandhaka which are in more or less regular liturgical use and which most senior monks are likely to have memorized. It shouldn’t be hard to find recordings of them at Youtube. They are:

1. Paṭiccasamuppāda anuloma: “avijjāpaccayā saṅkhārā, saṅkhārapaccayā viññāṇaṃ…”
2. Paṭiccasamuppāda paṭiloma: “avijjāyatveva asesavirāganirodhā saṅkhāranirodho…”
3. Three Udānas: “yadā have pātubhavanti dhammā…”
4. Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta.
5. Anattalakkhaṇa Sutta.
6. Ādittapariyāya Sutta.
7. Brahmayācanakathā.
8. Tisaraṇagamana: “buddhaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi…”
9. Assaji’s gāthā to Sāriputta: “ye dhammā hetuppabhavā…”
10. Upasampadā formulas: “suṇātu me, bhante, saṅgho, ayaṃ itthannāmo itthannāmassa āyasmato upasampadāpekkho…”
11. Cattāro nissayā: “piṇḍiyālopabhojanaṃ nissāya pabbajjā…”
12. Cattāri akaraṇīyāni: “upasampannena bhikkhunā methuno dhammo na paṭisevitabbo…”
    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”
    Uruvela Sutta, A.ii.20

    It were endless to dispute upon everything that is disputable.
