All Night Chanting

August 30, 2024 - August 31, 2024

Pāṇā ca saṃvibhajantu, devo vassatu kāḷiṃ

May beings share this merits,
may the Devas let it pour.

Every year, at the end of August, the Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple hosts a sacred event that transcends the ordinary, inviting devotees and visitors alike to partake in a profound spiritual experience: the All Night Chanting.

The solemn ceremony marks the beginning of a night-long vigil dedicated to blessing Malaysia’s king, the nation, and its people, while also commemorating the spirit of Merdeka, the country’s independence.

Event Details

Highlights

Participants are encouraged to bring their religious artefacts and symbols to be blessed during the puja (ritual offering).

Whether it be Buddha images, prayer beads, or holy scriptures, these sacred objects are believed to carry spiritual significance and serve as conduits for divine grace. Additionally, water bottles brought by attendees are also blessed during the ceremony, symbolizing purification and renewal.

Programme

Pirith Mandapa

One of the unique aspects of this gathering is the Pirith Mandapa. Also known as the “Pirith Mandiraya,” holds significant cultural and religious importance in Sri Lanka. Derived from the Pali word “Pirit,” meaning protection or blessing, and “Mandapa,” referring to a pavilion or hall. 

The Pirith Mandapa serves as a sacred space dedicated to the recitation and preservation of Buddhist scriptures, particularly the chanting of Pirith Suttas.
