**New Class** – Pali Chanting
Understanding the ancient texts of Pali chanting can help to practice our Buddhist tradition. Chanting is another practice as part of meditation and is used to develop inner strength by monks and laypeople. In this class we will learn how to chant and understand the powerful words of these suttas. Classes will be led by Bhante Sathi and held on Sundays from 4-5 pm at the Chaska Mindfulness Center.
