Namo Buddhaya (movie clip)

Thailand witnessed a unique empowerment ceremony between 9th December till 29th December 2009 at a historic Avalokiteshwar Temple of 10, 000 Buddhas situated near Bangkok. It was attended by 21 thousand Buddhist monks led by the chief visionary Lady Monk of the temple Most Venerable Master Shi Kuang Seng. The Royal Princess of Thailand HRH Prof. Dr. Chulabhorn Walailak also attended as a chief guest on 9th December 2009 and honoured various scholars. These pics and the movie clip is from the same ceremony . The grand temple has an amazing statue of Sahastrabahu Uma Devi (Durga) with a thousand hands and also of Lord Shiva, Ganesh, Lakshmi and Krishna thus presenting a wonderful glimpse of Hindu-Buddhist commanalities.

It should be "Namo Buddhaya" - Missing the last 'a' and making it Buddhay isn't a proper formation in Sanskrit. Namo should be used on Chaturtii vibhatki words in Sansktrit, hence the use Buddhaya

Unlike in Hindi, you can't do away with
terminating swaras (vowels) :)

Dear Mr Tarun Vijay,

Here i am approaching to you with one inquiry for the original language in Sankrit/Pali :-
1-Namo buddhaya
2-Namo dharmaya
3-Namo Sangkhaya
4-I ti pi so...(Buddha Guna)
5-Sva kha to... (Dharma Guna)
6-Supatipanno...(Sangha Guna)

Thanks you in advance,

Best Regards,
