The Heart Sutra. Emerson College, 2014
Emerson College, East Sussex, UK. July 4-6th 2014
This annual camping retreat in the grounds of Emerson College in East Sussex is organised by Huw Wyn.
James begins by saying that, “Tomorrow we will start looking at the Heart Sutra, one of the Buddha’s first teachings on emptiness or the natural openness of all phenomena, and then we will go on to look at the basic principles of Dzogchen and Dzogchen practice. But tonight I will give an overview of basic buddhist principles and show how they are, in themselves, the practice of being alive.”
The weekend included group chanting and singing, including singing the Prajñaparamita Mantra “Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha” on 06.07.2014, [Track 6, or File 19 on the Download].
