Chanting From The Heart

Buddhist Ceremonies, texts, and Daily Practices

This Plum Village Chanting and Recitation Book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in liturgy and for everyone who just wants to celebrate life and practice the art of mindful living. It contains chants and recitations for daily spiritual practice and for such occasions as blessing a meal, celebrating a wedding, comforting the sick and remembering the deceased. Also included are more than twenty discourses comprising some of the most fundamental teachings of the Buddha and his enlightened students, including the Heart Sutra, The discourse on the Mindfulness of Breathing, the Discourse on Happiness, the Discourse on Taking Refuge in Oneself and the Discourse on Love. Many of the chants include sheet music.

An unprecedented collection of traditional and contemporary Buddhist chants, recitations, and ceremonial texts for daily spiritual practice when first published in the Fall of 2000, this new paperback edition was completely revised in Plum Village, Thich Nhat Hanh’s practice center in France. Plum Village Chanting and Recitation Book is the quintessential resource and reference book for Buddhist practitioners on any level of experience, and for anyone who wants to celebrate life and practice the art of mindful living.
