Spiral bound paperback; 159 pages
This collection of gathas was compiled through the efforts of the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple, and funded by its Music Fund and the work of composers, lyricists, and arrangers that have contributed to the Jodo Shinshu musical tradition. Sing Namo Amida Butsu includes republished gathas used throughout the Buddhist Churches of America as well as some new music and translated lyrics. English and Japanese voice lines with chords are included as well as notation for music service sutras of the Ju Sei Ge and San Butsu Ge. Chords for ukulele and guitar are available for most gathas.
