Emptiness and the Heart Sutra

posted May 10, 2013, 4:55 PM by Five Stones
Our weekly meditations begin at 5:30 and will continue with a Dharma Discussion on Emptiness, facilitated by Gary.  We are meeting the the Friends Meeting House at 3211 NW Polk, Corvallis.  Please bring a cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor.  Chairs are provided.  
The Heart Sutra, Prajnaparamita, The Heart of Understanding, begins with yhese words, "The Bodhisattva Avalokita, while moving in the deep course of Perfect Understanding, shed light on the Five Skandas and found them equally empty."  
"Empty of what?",  asks Thay.   We will examine emptiness, through the eyes of Thich Nhat Hanh, our teacher,  and other masters in the Chinese schools of buddhism.
