Studies Contemplations and Ponderings on the Heart Sutra

Monday 1st-Monday 22nd June 2020

This series of Monday evenings are shaped to unpack one of the seminal texts of the
Mahayana Path of Buddhadharma by drawing on the skills and understanding of many of the great teachers of contemporary and historical Buddhism. Together we will look at how the development of a more comprehensive view led to a restating of the principles laid out by the historical Buddha to meet the conditions of a changing society. In each of the evenings we will look at different aspects of the text to make it more accessible and understandable, from its historical arising to its challenging of the views that shaped early Buddhist practice. In this shared exploration Matthew will share his investigations and understandings of the Teaching and Mark will share a series of contemplations and exercises that will augment each evenings themes.
