Prajna-Paramita-Hrdaya-Sutra (The Heart Sutra) is a pivotal Sutra of Mahayana Buddhism. It summarizes the essence of the Prajna Paramita (Wisdom Perfection) teachings of the Buddha into a short scripture of around 250 words. It is a luminous expression of the enlightened wisdom realizing the doctrine of emptiness.

Many Buddhists around the world recite this daily to plant the imprints towards achieving the highest wisdom. Choe Khor Sum Ling is glad to organize this opportunity to learn the meaning of this profound Sutra from a renowned master. There will also be an opportunity to engage in a discussion session on this topic.
