The Heart Sutra is the essence of the Prajñāpāramitā Hṛdaya and translates to “The Heart of the Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom”. We recite the Heart Sutra during the Sunday Chenrezi weekly practice session. In this class Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche will be giving an explanation of this profound sutra, providing commentary from the great Indian masters Nagarjuna and Shantideva.
