Exploring The Heart Sutra: An Online Retreat

9:00 am - 3:00 pm, Saturday July 31, 2021
Online - Presented by Long Beach Meditation

This day-long online retreat will focus on the Heart Sutra and include ample time for meditation and periods of restful silence. Dharma talks and discussions will be centered on key aspects of the Heart Sutra.

Description

“Form is no other than emptiness, emptiness is no other than form”. This sentence encapsulates the essence of the Heart Sutra, a classic sutra of Māhāyana Buddhism. Introducing the fundamental principle of emptiness, the sutra skillfully breaks down conventional truths about reality, pointing to wisdom beyond conceptual understanding. Chanted each day in many temples and practice centers around the world, the Heart Sutra remains a key and trusted resource for dharma practitioners looking to strengthen their contemplation and deepen their realization.
