Sak Yant Katha – The prayers or mantra that go with the Sak Yant

With the yant comes the Katha. It is a prayer or mantra that is recited in the morning and in the evening.

I am fortunate enough to have had the chance to see Ajarn Anek in Thailand many times now. The last time I was there, he allowed me to record the katha so that I could share it with people who were interested in the proper pronunciation and annunciation.

You may save the mp3 to replay for personal, non-commercial use. (note: if you wish to use it for other than personal use, please ask me first so that I can pass on to Ajarn where his katha is going on the internet)
