This beautifully illustrated new edition collects a number of Buddhist devotional rituals and verses. English translations of the verses in traditional Buddhist languages, Pali and Sanskrit, allow the reader to focus more clearly on the particular aspect of their practice while chanting in one of the two ancient languages provides a worldwide link between Buddhists.
