Study Group: Heart Sutra

The Heart Sutra is an ancient scripture from the Mahayana wisdom schools of Buddhism. It is an insight into the nature of ultimate reality through intuitive wisdom. The Heart Sutra is chanted during each morning service at Ashland Zen Center. 


In this study group we will explore its origin, history, and growth to become the single most commonly recited, chanted, copied and studied scripture in Buddhism. We will share commentaries, transliteration, and our own direct experiences.


This study group is open to all. We encourage you to attend all six sessions, but you can benefit from attending any of the sessions. All materials are provided. 


Suggested donation $5 per session.
