Based on a phenomenologically successful effective chiral theory of pseudoscalar, vector, and axial-vector mesons, all the coefficients of the chiral perturbation theory are predicted. There is no new adjustable parameter in these predictions. Up to O(m2q) the formulas of the masses of the pseudoscalar mesons are the same as the ones obtained by ChPT.
