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!
The Shrine Room is located in the back yard of the residence at 2208 Keller Lane. The Shrine Room can be accessed by walking south up the driveway along the white vinyl fence (on the west side). Follow the walkway south past the first building on the left all the way to the second building toward your left. Look for the the prayer flags :-)
