Heart Sutra and Emptiness, by Geshe Tashi Tsering, 25 – 27 May 2018

Heart Sutra is one of the most studied, read and recited Mahayana Sutras within all the different Mahayana traditions. In Tibetan Buddhist tradition it is not only recited by individuals or in groups but its meaning has been very through studied. There are many commentaries on this Sutra, which are written by Indian and Tibetans great masters.

Its main subject is ” Emptiness”, which is one of the most important realities to be understood to follow Mahayana Buddhist spiritual path. Understanding of Emptiness brings an end to all the afflictive emotions and together with developed Bodhicitta, the mind of Great Compassion leads to full Enlightenment. Through studying the profound text of the Heart Sutra, we will get a deeper understanding and insight into the subject of Emptiness.
