9780948006777: Heart of Wisdom: An Explanation of the Heart Sutra

In this clear and detailed commentary to the "Essence of Wisdom" or "Heart Sutra," one of the most popular Mahayana Buddhist texts, the author skilfully explains the dream-like nature of all things, the relationship between our mind and our world, and the extent to which we create our own reality.
Through studying, contemplating and meditating on this Sutra we can gain a perfect understanding of the nature of reality, overcome hindrances and difficulties in our daily life and finally overcome the obstacles preventing our attaining the perfect happiness of enlightenment.
