THE NEW HEART OF WISDOM
An Explanation of the Heart Sutra
By Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Also available as an audiobook on CD
The Heart Sutra is probably Buddha’s most well-known discourse; and yet it reveals an aspect of his teaching – ultimate truth emptiness – that is one of the most difficult to realize.
In this extraordinary book, Geshe Kelsang takes us line by line through the Sutra and explains its hidden meaning with remarkable clarity.
Sincere study of this book lays a firm foundation for meditation on ultimate truth emptiness, which leads to the complete eradication of the ignorance of self-grasping and the experience of permanent inner peace.
The book also includes a special practice based on the recitation of the Sutra for overcoming obstacles and hindrances.
