What you chant doesn’t make any difference.  Nonsense syllables are best so
you won’t be tempted to try to think about what they mean while you’re
chanting.  There should be no ‘intent’ behind chanting.  You chant to chant.
Just like you sit (zazen) to sit.  There should be no intent, no motive, no
goal, nothing to understand.

When I chant, I chant the second to the last line of the Heart Sutra: ‘Gate
gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha’.

Sorry.  Too many materialists have spoiled that rather clichéd chant.
Looking for something new that can't be used for greedy gain.

Sounds like something you would chant. It is a Buddhist chant by the way.
