This book is absolutely fantastic because it gives you really pratical information of rituals of the most popular Buddhist sects of Japan. I liked a lot because treats the all sects at the same level and gives you details very rare to find. If you look for example at the information on Shingon Buddhism it is very difficult to find the few books pubblished in English, here you find much more without the need to go to Japan. Rituals and information concerning the popular buddhism of the Nembutsu, Pure Land , Nichiren sects and Zen. This book is totally different from the others because here you will find the practice of the religion, not only the philosophic aspects. PS sorry for my english, I am italian mothertongue.
