Book Club: The Heart Sutra (Commentaries by Master Sheng Yen & Thich Nhat Hanh)

Details

Dear Dharma Drink Friends,

"Perhaps the best know of all Buddhist Sutras, the Heart Sutra is recited in Buddhist centers, temples, and monasteries around the world. Its popularity and importance to Buddhists, over centuries of practice, is understandable. Though brief, the Heart Sutra embodies the essence of Buddhadharma. Most longer sutras emphasize various individual aspects of Buddhadharma from many perspectives, but the Heart Sutra, jut over a page long, distills the teachings of the Buddha to their purest, clearest, most concise essence," There is No Suffering by Chan Master Sheng Yen.
