Rongton Buddhist Centre proudly presents 

Understanding the Heart Sutra 


Lama Choedak Rinpoche

The Heart Sutra is a short but most important Mahayana Buddhist text, widely used by Zen, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhists around the world. The Heart Sutra is a hard text to understand as it is the condensed version of the Perfection of Wisdom texts which contain 100,000 stanzas. It is an important subject of daily meditation and is also used at every important Buddhist celebration.

Understanding of the meaning of Heart Sutra is crucial to be able to do Vajrayana deity yoga meditation. The text Heart Sutra is deified as a deity called Prajnaparamita 'Mother of All the Buddhas'. Understanding the contents of the Heart Sutra boosts one's formal practice and will also empower oneself to realise practical Buddhist insights in the context of everyday life problems and issues.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche will teach using Khenchen Migmar Tsering's teachings given in 1993.
