Oryoki and the Oryoki Chant

Oryoki and the Oryoki Chant <br>by Tony Duff

Oryoki is the Japanese way of turning meals into meditation practice. The Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced it to Shambhala, his community of Western Buddhists in 1980. He adapted it slightly, adding the Tibetan monastic meal liturgy to it. This book begins with a history of Oryoki and continues with a complete explanation of the Tibetan monastic meal liturgy and its use. Although the book was written for the Shambhala community and their practice of Oryoki, it could be used by any Buddhist wanting to incorporate meals into their meditation practice.

The liturgy starts with the Sutra of the Recollection of the Noble Three Jewels which is used in one form or another in all schools of Buddhism. This sutra is used for developing faith and strength of refuge in the Three Jewels. The author has translated the sutra and written an extensive commentary on it that should be of great value to every Buddhist, regardless of their interest in Oryoki.
