This book of prayers is a real source of enlightement and pleasure which leads the reader in Shinto's spirituality.
Each prayer is appears in its original form (japanese Kanji- Hiragana - Katana) with a translation in English and the original text written in roman alphabet.
The author Ann Llewellyn Evans made here a wonderful work for the one wishing to go dive into Shinto's spirituality.
This book let me getting deeper into Shinto's vibration and to be closer to it

HASH(0x8eabda2c) out of 5 stars Shinto Prayers are Very Moving 26 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a wonderful find! I bought the book wanting to understand more about Shinto beliefs, and I got even more than I expected. The introduction explained the basics. The translation of the prayers is really beautiful. And I also found I could pronounce the Japanese (I can't read or speak any Japanese!) by reading the "romaji"--the Japanese pronunciation written in English letters.
I've started chanting a couple of the prayers every morning--it is really calming and starts my day out great.
This book is a "must" for anyone interested in Shinto.

HASH(0x8f6537bc) out of 5 stars My questions are answered 17 July 2006
By Michael E. Moriarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's rare that I find my questions fully answered in one book. This is the book that tells me more than I knew to ask about how to practice Shinto. I speak with humility and respect when I say, thank you, Ann Llewelyn Evans. With a profound bow.

HASH(0x90fb8fc0) out of 5 stars an original point of wiew 14 Sept. 2005
By Kaiko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My opinion is that this book is not an empty academic book that show the Shinto as in religion's history book. In this book we have an idea of the heart of Shinto, of the practice of Shinto, of the Shinto as felt by who practice it. This book contain also very important translations of Norito

HASH(0x8f098888) out of 5 stars Exactly what it says it is 14 Nov. 2008
By C. Hess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what the title says. It is a book of Shinto norito, or prayers.

The book begins by giving some basic understanding of the practice of Shinto. My favorite section is actually the Appendices, which give some descriptions of how to pray, the bowing and the clapping, etc. Also, describes how offerings are set out.

One thing I wish the book did was to describe or show diagrammatically, voice inflections in the prayers. Given that the sound of the words are so important in Shinto prayers, I would think that inflection would be important too, and I saw no discussion of this. If it's pronounced in a monotone manner, I'd like to at least know that. But, that's my personal feeling. Maybe I should see if I can find some audio clips to get a better idea of how Shinto prayers are chanted.

Back to the review, this is very much a non-academic book and the discussion of Shinto itself is pretty minimal. I don't feel I learned a tremendous amout about Shinto here. But then, as the title says, this is a book of prayers, which is exactly what I wanted and was expecting, and I'm glad I found it.

HASH(0x9018f584) out of 5 stars An unexpected treasure 4 Sept. 2008
By KBLH Enthusiast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up a copy of this book while visiting the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America in Granite Falls, WA. I was incredibly impressed with how the author explained the various terminologies, the Shinto appreciation of Nature and the Kami offering a greater understanding to the beautiful ritual we had witnessed by Reverend Barrish. The lovely translations of the beloved Shinto prayers were an added and unexpected bonus.
