Silence and the Prajnaparamita Sutra (Perfection of Wisdom)

Silence and the Prajnaparamita Sutra (perfection of Wisdom):  This sutra is sacred across many Buddhist traditions including Zen Buddhism.  The Voice of Silence was one of the last two works of Theosophist H.P. Blavatsky, and is quite amazing.  HH the Dalai Lama and D.T. Suzuki have even commented on it.  There are amazing, remarkable, and beautiful parallels.  This will not be an academic comparison of texts but a deeper examination.  Features include a beautiful poem by Thich Nhat Hanh and will iclude a segment with a meditation.


Dr. Ruth Richards is one of the leading researchers on creativity in daily life and Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University.  She has published a series of papers, presentations, and books, the most recent of which, Everyday Creativity, has achieved scholarly and popular acclaim.

    I also enjoyed Dr. Richards. I intend to get Dr. Blavatsky's Voice of Silence. I googled her name and found her to be a fascinating and forward thinling woman.

    Dr. Richards gave an excellent presentation. I ended up going right to the bookstore. :)

    Since I am not a student of Mahayana Buddhism or Blavatsky I had to look up the Prajnaparamita Sutra and the theosophical Voice of Silence. Anyone who is interested can look up Prajnaparamita on the web (it's a bit complicated) and Blavatsky's Voice of Silence at http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/voice/voice1.htm
    This will be a very interesting presentation.
