Pirith is the Sinhala word for paritta (in Pali), which means protection. "It protects one from all directions", is the traditional definition. This is the recitation or chanting of the word of the Buddha.

During the 2004 vesak season I put some pirith mp3 files on a web site and received good comments on it. So the next year I planned to improve it on a separate web site. I got a free domain and put that on a free hosted server. Since it was on a free server it was having some problems as usual. Low bandwidth, limited space, Ad's and so on...

In February 2007 I received email from Mr. Lucky Jayasuriya , He is Sinhalese living in USA. He sponsored to web hosting and also he sponsored for pirith.org domain name. That's how this pirith.org comes live.

Try to understand the meanings of this great Buddha thoughts !

One of the best Pirith Chanting I heard was by a small boy call Dhammaruwan, which is something special. The recording quality is poor, but I tried my best to filter it and make it of better quality.

Dhammaruwan Story :

Dhammaruwan was born in a small village near Kandy , Sri Lanka in November, 1968. From the age of about two, before he could read or write , he spontaneously started to chant the ancient Buddhist scriptures in the original pali language , known only to a few scholar monks.

Each day, somewhere around two o'clock in the morning, after sitting in meditation with his adopted and devoted Buddhist foster father for about twenty to forty minutes, he would spontaneously start to chant pali suttas. On the Poya or lunar Observance day, he would sometimes chant for two hours.

Dhammaruwan's foster father started making amateur recording of the chanting and invited prominent scholar monk to listen. The monk verified that it was indeed the ancient pali language and the boy were chanting it in an ancient style which no longer existed in world.

Ven. Ananda requests help from the Lord Buddha because Ven. Girimananda had become very ill. The Lord Buddha teaches the ten contemplations to Ven. Ananda and tells him to go and pass them to Ven. Girimananda that he might be cured. And this was what happened.(A.v. 108 )

The Lord Buddha visits Ven. Maha Kassapa who was suffering from a painful illness and finding that the illness is improving teaches him the seven factors of enlightenment(Bhojjhanga). The Ven. Maha Kassapa delights in this teaching and is cured. This also occurred when. Ven. Maha Moggallana and Ven. MahaCunda are ill. (S.v. 79-81)
