Great Gathering 3 - The Heart Sutra: Emptiness and Great Compassion

Friday, 16 November 2018 to Sunday, 18 November 2018

If we know the Heart Sutra we know – in a sense – everything.

The Heart Sutra is part of the Perfection of Wisdom texts, which are concerned with seeing reality everywhere, in all circumstances and conditions. Its wisdom springs not from the intellectual level, but from sources infinitely deeper. Deep indeed is this wisdom, born of emptiness, and from this wisdom comes the great compassion of the awakening heart.

On this weekend we’ll be exploring this emptiness and great compassion, through meditation, talks, discussion groups and puja.

The weekend starts at 6:30pm with dinner on the Friday and finishes after lunch on the Sunday at about 2:30pm.
