Chanting is one of the only practices found in every mystical tradition in the world and it is also a core practice of the Monastic Academy.


The act of chanting as a community is an embodiment of the bonds that tie together the individual and the collective. It fosters concentration and collective joy.


Each morning residents chant the Five Precepts and Gate Gate.

Before each meal residents chant the Metta Sutta and, after each meal, the Four Vows.

In the evening, residents chant Om Mani Padme Hum.

The language of these chants include Tibetan, Pali, Sanskrit, Japanese and English.

The plurality of traditions and languages embodies the Monastic Academy’s non-sectarian nature and a deep appreciation for all the world’s mystical traditions.

The world desperately needs awakened leaders.
