Heart Sutra Practice
The Heart Sutra is one of the most well-known and revered texts of all of Buddhism. The text deals with shunyata, or emptiness, and it is from the Heart Sutra that the Bodhisattva, Avalokiteshvara, utters the famous lines: "Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form." Emptiness is a difficult concept to understand, as many equate it to nothingness. But just as planets, stars, asteroids and comets fly through the "emptiness" of space, so too our thoughts, our emotions, and our experience of conditioned existence, emerge from the "emptiness" of our minds. It is this emptiness, shunyata, that is our minds’ natural state, before we knew words, before we knew concepts, before we were conditioned by the cycle of death and rebirth. Join us as we clear our minds and connect with the heart essence of timeless awareness!
