This CD is the audio companion to Thich Nhat Hanh's "Plum Village Chanting and Recitation Book," ISBN # 0938077910. The CD contains the bulk of the recitations for your daily practice. The tunes are easily mastered if you wish to join in, the sound quality is excellent, and the singing is clear and at times arrestingly beautiful. Well-placed ringing of deep and high bells mark beginnings and endings and provide a source of focus for your meditation practice. The book provides the structure for your daily practice sessions and offers additional chants, poems and brief sutras recommended for your daily practice but not found on the CD. This CD, in conjunction with the companion book, can be used daily to structure your practice sessions, to provide support to settle the mind, and to rehearse important Buddhist teachings. Also recommended is Thich Nhat Hanh's "Plum Village Meditations," which I hope will someday be available on CD.
