Disc 1 Musical Tribute to Buddha
Chanting scriptures is a basic component in becoming a practitioner of Buddhism. If one wishes to attain a bodhi mind that is strong and wont fade away, one must begin by pondering on Buddhas greatness. If you can thoroughly understand Buddha, your faith will become unshakable, and only through this means will you have the courage to carry out the bodhisattva deeds. The most important thing in chanting scriptures is doing so in a very true, joyful, devout and focused way, visualizing the splendor of the Western Paradise as well as the clean light of Buddha. Once all of this is done to the point of purifying your mind, you will attain an immense dharma joy.

Disc 2 Melodies of Serenity
Buddhist music has also been called fan bei throughout Chinese history. The term fan means peaceful/clean, and bei means to sing praises. Chinese Buddhists have imitated ancient Indian singing and melodies in creating songs of praise to Buddha accompanied mainly by Buddhist musical instruments and winds. The selections here contain distinctive local colors and folk styles. Some material has also come from elements of traditional music. Famous ancient temples serve as the theme, and both a diversity and abundance of forms and content are present.
