Description About the author
 
Oryoki is the Japanese way of turning meals into meditation practice.  The Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche introduced it to his Shambhala community of Western Buddhists in 1980.  He adapted it slightly, putting the Tibetan monastic meal liturgy with it.  This book starts 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, the book could be used by any Buddhist wanting to make meals into 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.  The 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 to it that should be of great value to every Buddhist, regardless of their interest in Oryoki.
