曹洞宗日課勤行聖典 Sōtōshū nikka gongyō seiten
Soto School Scriptures for Daily Services and Practice

Translated by Soto Zen Text Project
http://scbs.stanford.edu/sztp3/translations/gongyo_seiten/contents.html

A complete translation of the basic liturgy of the Soto school. In order to ensure the broadest possible consensus on the English version, the translations were developed as a cooperative effort of the American Soto Zen centers, through a series of translation workshops at Green Gulch Farm, in California, that brought together representatives of American Soto groups to work with the translators. The project's translation has been published by the Sotoshu and is available from Zenshuji, 123 South Hewitt Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
