Keywords:Buddha, chanting, Buddhist character, Paritta, Sutta
The issue of mental health has been increasingly prominent as various life pressures become more problematic. Character education can play an important role in improving mental health. By promoting positive values, attitudes, and behaviors, character education can help individuals develop the skills and resilience needed to cope with stress, overcome difficulties, and maintain good mental health. The character education that is the focus of this research is based on the tradition and values of religious teachings, namely the Buddhist tradition of chanting sutta and paritta. Through a descriptive study, this paper discusses the meaning of Buddhist chanting in character education, how chanting in the Buddhist tradition, especially Theravada, can play a role in character education. The meaning of this tradition is found in the implementation, methods, and obstacles encountered in the practice of reading sutta and paritta to embody Buddhist character.
