Chapter Summary

This section presents the transcription of the Subu Heniin text recited by Mudan Pai in his house during four days in 2004 and translated in chapter 6. He chanted these words in a steady, measured pace, broken only by a pause between phrases, which are separated by commas in the transcription. An extended pause after two or three phrases marks the end of one 'line' and the beginning of another. Occasionally, Mudan Pai chanted only one phrase before pausing and moving to a new line. Mudan Pai, like most nyibus, chanted a line of two or three phrases approximately every ten seconds and about five or six lines every minute. Such uninterrupted chanting did not continue for long, however, and the normal breaks, plus unexpected problems, meant that he chanted 250-300 lines an hour.
