Elements of Buddhist Ritual & Practice 

Buddhists who meditate are referred to as practitioners. Practice includes the saying of prayers and integrating Buddhist principles into all aspects of life, such as diet and marriage.  Besides studying texts and chanting prayers, there are other special activities associated with training the mind to benefit from the Teachings of Buddha.  This is especially true with regard to the tantric approach; Vajrayana is enhanced through the use of symbolic or ritual items and activities.
