2011 Heart Sutra Retreat
The Venerable Geshe Kalsang Damdul led a one day retreat on the Heart Sutra Ritual in July 2011. The essential teaching of Heart Sutra is on emptiness. If we could get even a rough understanding of emptiness it is helpful in overcoming our afflictive emotions and achieving wisdom eye for what to adopt and what to discard, thus making our life more peaceful and harmonious, and gaining a sound footing to reaching enlightenment for the benefit of countless number of sentient beings. The Heart Sutra ritual and practice is best performed in the evening and can remove obstacles and hindrances in your daily life.
