    Fall Retreat with Acharya Moh Hardin

    The Wisdom of the Heart Sutra in Turbulent Times

    Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11 all day,

    Registration and coffee/tea: 8:30 Saturday, November 10.


    In this weekend program, we will practice and explore how the wisdom expressed in the Heart Sutra, one of Mahayana Buddhism’s most important teachings, directly applies as we experience current upheavals in our world and our Shambhala community.

    It’s been said that it is always good to practice the Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Knowledge, commonly called the Heart Sutra, but it is particularly potent in turbulent and confusing times. Great meditation masters have spent lifetimes understanding the meaning of emptiness expressed in this Sutra spoken by the bodhisattva of compassion Avalokiteshvara to Shariputra.

    The Heart Sutra is certainly not saying ‘it’s all empty, so it doesn’t matter.’  Rather this classic Sutra teaches how to uncover prajna, “a very clear, precise, and intelligent state of being that has a sharp quality, the ability to penetrate and reveal situations.”  Once revealed, then appropriate and compassionate action can arise.

    This exploration of the Heart Sutra with Acharya Hardin in relation to current events will be of interest to all meditation practitioners. These principles are foundational to Shambhala Buddhism and all Mahayana Buddhist traditions.
