Morning and Evening Chanting

Post by TRobinson465 »

Hello Dhamma community,

I was told a while ago that the morning and evening chanting done in Thai temples was created from several suttas a Thai monk put together hundreds of years ago. This would actually make sense since the chanting actually varies between temples within thailand sometimes.

This got me wondering, do non-Thai Theravada temples (sri lankan, burmese, etc.) do morning and evening chanting? and if so what are there versions like?

Appreciate the input from those with expeirence with non-Thai Buddhism. :anjali:

"Go forth, monks, for the good of the many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world, for the welfare, the good and the happiness of gods and men. Let no two of you go in the same direction." - First Khandhaka, Chapter 11, Vinaya.
