Event Details

Tuesdays, 7:30 - 9 pm
April 24 - May 29 (Six Classes)
with Korin Charlie Pokorny

The Heart Sutra is a concise text on the prajna-paramita (“perfection of wisdom”) teaching of emptiness chanted in Zen temples and monasteries throughout the world. In this class we will explore the Heart Sutra with an emphasis on unfolding the teachings of emptiness and the two truths, studying the Abhidharma context of these teachings, and considering the practices and doctrinal developments associated with the Heart Sutra in China and Japan.
