Children's Chanting Class 2024

Children’s Chanting Class


Chanting serves as an engaging introduction to Buddhism for children, preventing boredom from lengthy teachings. Each week, they will have fun chanting together with friends, comprehending the chant’s meaning and importance, and learning to chant with respect and confidence. On top of that, this class not only covers fundamental Buddhist etiquette and meditation but also teaches children to employ Mindfulness while chanting. Over time, they will be able to harness this practice to soothe their minds during life’s challenges. Enroll your child in this class to unlock the multitude of benefits chanting offers!

Chanting Material

The Four Noble Truths, Noble Eightfold Path, and Four Foundations of Mindfulness are three of the most important teachings in Buddhism, and together they form the core of Buddhist practice.

The Four Noble Truths are the foundation of Buddhist philosophy and teach that suffering exists, that suffering arises from craving and attachment, that it is possible to end suffering, and that the Noble Eightfold Path is the way to end suffering.

The Noble Eightfold Path is a set of guidelines for living a meaningful and fulfilling life that involves developing Right Understanding, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Concentration. Practicing the Noble Eightfold Path can help us cultivate a sense of inner peace and wisdom, and can help us to overcome the causes of suffering.

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness are a set of practices that are used to develop Right Mindfulness. It involves paying attention to the present moment with clear awareness, and observing our experiences without judgment. Through this practice, we can cultivate greater insight into the nature of reality, develop greater compassion and empathy, and learn to live more fully in the present moment.

Together, these teachings form a comprehensive framework for Buddhist spiritual practice that can help us lead a more meaningful and fulfilling life. By learning and applying these teachings in our daily lives, we can cultivate greater wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness, and find greater peace and happiness in the midst of the challenges of life.

As such, if children are able to learn these 3 Buddhist teachings from young, they will be able to develop important life skills that can lead to very fulfilling lives.

Hence, the material used for chanting will be from the ‘Long Discourse on Ways to Attend to Mindfulness (Mahā Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta)‘ as it explains in detail the 3 most important Buddhist teachings described above.

Parents are strongly encouraged to join the chanting class with their kid(s).


Bhikkhu Varañāṇo will be the teacher for this course. He has conducted many meditation retreats with good reviews. He is also the founder of this website. For more details, see here.
