What is a Kata?

•November 16, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Kata comes from the Pali word “Ghata” (or Ghaataa), meaning “speak”. If you think about the English word “spell” (as in magick spell), you will see that to spell a word is also to speak it out, be it on paper or using voice. This is where the word “spell” came from! A Magic Spell is ancient English for “a magick speaking” – Ghata also means “speech” but is generally used to refer to sacred chants and magic spells, as well as sutras given to us by the Lord Bhuddha.

Nevertheless, there are other uses for the word Kata;
Dierajchana Ghaataa (Dierachan kata/เดียรฉานคาถา, in Thai) Dierajchana means “animal” and Ghaataa means speech – any speech which is not dhamma, or at least auspicious (speech which is useless or just cause confusion), is called “Dierajchana Ghaataa”.
Also, the word Dierajchaana is used with the word “Wichaa” ; Wichaa means knowledge (also used for referring to subjects, arts and sciences one may study, such as “electronics” “occult matters” “politics” “wood carving” etc). Any “Wichaa” which is not leading to Dhamma, liberation from suffering and endless rebirths, and Enlightenment, is called “Awichaa” (Avicca, in Pali) (false knowledge). Any Wichaa which uses animal headed ruesi, animal posessions or any kind of work withblack magic or non beneficial uses, is known as “Awichaa” (Avicca – false knowledge, and Dierajchana Wichaa – ignorant animal science). Superstition is also Awichaa, and Buddha warned vehemently against it.
“Do not believe in what you have heard; do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations; do not believe anything because it is rumored and spoken of by many; do not believe merely because the written statement of some old sage is produced; do not believe in conjectures; do not believe merely in the authority of your teachers and elders. After observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it”. (The Buddha)

Kata for “Na Maetta”

•November 16, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Na Maetthaa – นะ เมตตา

“Na Maetthaa Moe Garuna Put Bpraanii Taa Yin Dee – Ya Aen Duu”
This is the Kata Hua Jai (Heart Mantra) used when making Na Maetthaa.
Notice that the first of each of the 5 phrases of the Kata are the five syllables of Kata Pra Putta Jao Ha Praongk (5 Dhyani Buddhas Kata); “Na Moe Put Taa Ya”.
Na (Maetta – means freindlyness and compassion), Moe (Garunaa – means generosity), Put (Bpraanii – means mercy) – Dtaa (Yin Dee – means to welcome and be pleased to help towards to others) Ya (Aen Duu – means to be worried and concerned about others). As you can see the meaning of this Kata is obviously Maetta through and through.. Its basically the blessing many of you may have recieved with gold leaf on your foreheads whilst visiting a temple.Although called Na Hnaa Tong, and have extra Kata too for protection against illness – but the Na and purpose is almost the same in its purpose.
Chant the following Kata whilst inscribing the “Ma A U” agkara.
Ma Gaaroe Hoethi Sampawoe (for the Ma letter)
A Gaaroe Hoethi Sampawoe (for the A letter)
U Gaaroe Hoethi Sampawoe (for the U letter)
นะ เมตตา โมกรุณา พุทธปราณี ธายินดี ยะเอนดู
สูตรนี้ใช้เป็นคาถาท่องเวลาลงนะเมตตา ครับ
เมื่อลงอกขระ มะอะอุ จงท่องคาถาดังนี้ครับ
มะ กาโร โหติ สัมภะโว ลงตัวมะ
อะ กาโร โหติ สัมภะโว ลงตัวอะ
อุ กาโร โหติ สัมภะโว ลงตัวอุ

Whilst inscribing the Sickle Moon and the Unalome;
Ath-Tajantang Gaaroe Hoethi Sampawoe (for the Moon)
U Gaaroe Hoethi Sampawoe Unaloemaaa Pbana Chaayatae
A SANG WI SU LOE BU SA PU PA (for the Unalome)

อฑฒะจันทัง กาโร โหติ สัมภะโว ลงจันทร
อุ กาโร โหติ สัมภะโว อุณาโลมา ปะนะ ชายะเต อสังวิสุโลปุสะพุึภะ ลงอุณาโลม
