See below about purchasing the book containing the text to be taught.

"The Great Song of Experience was composed by Jetsun Rinpoche Dragpa Gyaltsen (1127 - 1216), the third foundling master of the Sakya tradition. This Song captures the essence of the Buddhist teachings with respect to view, meditation and conduct and the result, Buddhahood. The Great Song was translated from Tibetan into English by Archarya Migmar Tseten and Kunga Namdol." It is this translation (as published in the book, Visions, Volumn I) that we will study during the Teaching. [Quote taken from the Preface of Visions, Volumn I.]

NOTE: Participants will have the opportunity to buy the book, Visions, Volumn I for $15 on Saturday at the start of the Teaching for use during the Teaching and later study.

"The Heart Sutra is the condensation of the Prajna Paramita Sutra, and describes the nature of phenomena, which is the combination of emptiness and visibility. This was the content of the Buddha’s
Second Turning of the Wheel of Dharma ... The Heart Sutra is recited to accumulate wisdom ... Mahayana teaching is described as vast and profound. Vast refers to the conduct and aspiration of the Bodhisattva ... Profound refers to the deep view of personal and phenomenal emptiness. This is the content of The Heart Sutra." [Notes by Lama Kalsang Gyaltsen.]
