Sunday, Sep 16, 2018 - 10:00 am to 01:00 pm: "Basic Program- Heart Sutra" by Venerable Tenzin Legtsok

The Tathagata turned the wheel of Dharma for 2nd time on Mass of Vultures peak in Rajagriha. The Tathagata, the teacher, Shakya Muni Buddha, set forth the Perfection of Wisdom Sutras the year after he achieved Buddhahood. The Perfection of Wisdom Sutras are renowned in Tibet by names such as the seventeen mothers and sons. The most important ones are the vast, intermediate and the brief. All the meanings of the vast, intermediate, and condensed mother sutras are gathered here in “Heart Sutra.” Therefore, it is called the Sutra of Sutras or the Heart of Sutras.
