Sacred Audio: Far East

Although some of the recordings in this section belong to Buddhist schools, their related practices are always inscribed within the sphere of influence of the “Three Teachings” (the idea of San Jiao in China, Shinjubutsu Ichi in Japan), i.e. Confucianism and Buddhism amalgamated with indigenous traditions such as Taoism in China, Shinto in Japan or Mugyo in Korea. It is this challenging and enduring synthesis, instead of any single tradition, which characterises what can be called Far Eastern Religions.
