Here are some Pali chants by Thai monks. I downloaded these sometime ago from Many thanks to the webmaster! I would have liked to ask for permission first before posting these files, but the site no longer exists. It took me a while to decide to go ahead and post them. It is a great benefit for people who want to learn these chants to have them available. But, if anyone knows of any reason that I should take them off, . Thanks!

I will post a link to the text of each chant. A few audio chants are slightly different than the text, but I am posting them anyway and you can decide if you want to use them or not. Also note that some chants are done with Pali and Thai. Usually one sentence in Pali then the same sentence in Thai. Just replace the Thai portion with the English translation when you chant.
