Heart Sutra Teachings & Meditation - 2015
Heart Sutra Teachings & Meditation, 1 February 2015, Hong Kong
The Heart Sutra or Prajñāpāramitā is the quintessence of the Mahayana teachings. This sutra can protect us from all the problems caused by our deluded conceptions of this mundane world. Our projections lead to action and action to reaction, to create an ordered system: samsara. “Form is emptiness, emptiness is form” gives us the tools to destabilise samsara and find liberation, but we can only experience this emptiness directly through practice. Meditation is a method for us to access the wisdom of emptiness but eventually must itself be deconstructed, just as a boat is abandoned once we reach the other shore.
