Clear your mind with the calming and tranquil parittas recited by the ordained chanters of the Thai Monastic Community in Singapore.


Chanting is a part of the daily life of Thai Buddhist monks—the day begins with morning prayers at dawn, and ends with evening prayers at dusk. Chanting is also done during special occasions, such as marking annual celebrations, bestowing blessings on believers, and granting peace to the departed. Experienced monks are expected to recite various chants from memory—some are known to do so with discipline and speed, while others are known for reciting beautifully.


Part of the chant repertoire includes a set of protective texts called parittas. Written in the ancient language of Pali, parittas are believed to grant listeners protection from harm, be it physical or spiritual, and bestow good fortune.


Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
