Heart Sutra Practice at PBDC

Heart Sutra Practice
at Palm Beach Dharma Center in Lake Worth, FL

Every Wednesday, ongoing practice, everyone welcome
@ 7:00 pm

“The extent of joy in your heart and the joy you bring to others will always be dependent upon the extent to which your mind is motivated by loving-kindness and compassion. This is the point of view shared by all human beings, not just dharma practitioners. It is the most important standard by which we all judge one another. It is the essential practice of dharma as taught by the Buddhas. Compassion and loving-kindness, based upon emptiness - that is the condensed heart practice of the Prajnaparamita.”
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
