Latest little liturgy update on my Prajñācāra Blog
, <Small Chanting Book
SMALL CHANTING BOOK:
Chanting Book (Evening, Meals, 88 Buddha Repent, Amitabha) Short.pdf
Just recently compiled for the 2012 Humanistic Buddhism Monastic Life Program, aka the "Woodenfish", this Chanting Book contains the original Chinese, Hanyu Pinyin and English translation for the following common Chinese Buddhist liturgies:
1. The Heart Sutra (which we use as our standard evening chanting)
2. Meal time offerings (breakfast and lunch)
3. The Amitabha Sutra (standard Pure Land service)
4. The Eighty Eight Buddha's Repentance
Some of these have appeared on my Blog independently, so there may be some duplication. Still, hopefully this latest file should be useful for some of you out there! Enjoy!
Thanks to Ven. Hengshou Dharmamitra
for permission to use his Amitabha Sutra, other sources cited within.
And yes, if you are wondering, one day I will get around to putting this all together into a single and comprehensive "Daily Liturgy" style book (a la 禪門日誦). Bit by bit.

A mi tuo fo Fa Shi!
Thanks for the link.
By any chance, does Fa Shi know anything on a second version
that comes with additional verses and bowing specifications of the 88 Buddhas Repentance as compared to the one used in standard Ch'an liturgy?
Could this be an adapted version for the Chinese speaking audience in Vajrayana?
My first encounter with this second version was when I bought a Morning/Evening liturgical chanting CD by this group
some years back.

Actually, the practice of the 88 Buddha Repentance with the bowing instructions as in the link is the standard way to do the practice in Korean Buddhism, and the number of bows totals 108, thus it is more commonly known as the 108 Bow Great Repentance in Korea. However, the additional verses beyond the standard liturgy are not in the Korean practice either.
