The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra (the Heart Sutra) is part of the Prajnaparamita Sutras. It is a condensed presentation of the wisdom of emptiness revealed by Avalokiteshvara on Vulture’s Peak to one of the Buddha’s main disciples Shariputra.

Join Venerable Thubten Chokyi for four teachings to learn the meaning of this sutra and the associated mantra which can help us develop wisdom, purify karma and clear obstacles.

These online sessions will be held weekly in March 2024. The Zoom sessions will be available as a community event at Kunsang Yeshe or online at your location.

Why not join us in the gompa for the teachings and a cuppa?

‘If we are able to read or hear [the Heart Sutra] just one time, the positive imprint left by this definitely causes us in the near future to understand much more easily the teachings on emptiness. We will be able to understand the words and the meanings of the teachings on emptiness very easily, and we’ll be able to have realizations of emptiness easily, quickly in the future’. Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
