The Morning Chant

from The Walk With Me Soundscape by Speakit



Every morning at dawn, in the Plum Village tradition, this chant is sung by the monastics to begin the session of sitting meditation, helping to bring the community into the present moment and start the day in mindfulness.



The Dharma body is bringing morning light.
In concentration, our hearts are at peace,
a half-smile is born upon our lips.

This is a new day.
We vow to go through it in mindfulness.
The sun of wisdom has now risen,
shining in every direction.
Noble Sangha, diligently bring your mind into meditation.
