Sutta Preludes

Post by TRobinson465 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:11 am

Hi there,

Is there a central website/resource i can go to find the preludes (and the english translations) that monks chant before chanting certain suttas?

For instance, the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta has a prelude that goes "anuttarum abhisambodhim sambujjhitva tathagato...." Its of course very easy to find the Sutta itself, but i havent been able to find the preludes. I'm asking about a site where i can find the preludes to multiple suttas not just Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, as i actually already have an english translation to that particular prelude.


Thanks in advance. :anjali:
