Many see chanting as a practice related only to Buddhism, yet if you open to cultures prior to the onset of Buddhism you find many forms of chanting. I would like to share chanting from the Aka and Baka tribes (referred to as Pygmies) of the Congo whose chants date back more than 8,000 years. The filmmaker mistakenly calls it yodelling (based on a western perspective):
Dear Zenju, I’m sorry to leave a general question for you here, but I don’t know how else to contact you. I attended the chanting workshop you gave at EBMC a year or so ago and was wondering if you would be doing anything like that again soon. Also, do you teach anywhere on a regular basis or take on dharma students? Thanks.
I will contact you soon.
I’m on sabbatical. Keep an eye on this site.
