Chanting / The Evening Chant

At Plum Village monasteries around the world, we recite this chant directly before our period of silent sitting medtiation in the evening.

The Evening Chant 5:30

With posture upright and solid,
We are seated at the foot of the Bodhi tree.
Body, speech, and mind are one in stillness;
There is no more thought of right and wrong.
Our mind and body dwell in perfect mindfulness.
We rediscover our original nature,
leaving the shore of illusion behind.
Noble Sangha, diligently brings our minds into meditation.
