“… the very first line of the {Heart} sutra links Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of love, mercy, and compassion, with awakening and liberation  …”

“… What does it take to just grow one level bigger?  …”

 

Description: In this talk, which was given on the first day of the Spring 2020 sesshin at Mountain Cloud, we again take up the topic of the Heart Sutra, examining how the five skandhas may cease through a disciplined practice of sitting. The very first line of the sutra links Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of love, mercy, and compassion, with awakening and liberation, offering us a glimpse into the nature of the experience that may come through allowing our heart-mind to fall open into its intrinsic boundlessness.
