Very good service book for home. English language translation of the Sutras. Book was wrapped up for me. Shipping cost was great.
There are no temples whereI live now. I wanted to continue with some of the chanting that I had learned. The service book had the chants that I wanted. There are other things in the book that are useful to me. It's a very nice book
I moved to an area that doesn't have a temple. I wanted to be able to do some of the chants we had practiced before I moved away. The service book had the chants that I wanted. It has some other useful information as well. Very nice book. Very happy with it.
