Buddhist Liturgical Music

Buddhist Liturgical Music

Han Buddhism was introduced from India to the Han Dynasty through the western region some 2,000 years ago.

As it spread and developed through the northern and southern dynasties, many Buddhists emperors had a large number of scriptures translated, giving rise to its study and scholarly activity.

Shan Guang Buddhist Vihara presents a programme of chants used in rituals for blessings and funerals.

They will be accompanied on instruments such as bells, chimes, dizi, yangqin, drums, gongs and cymbals.
