Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new and revised commentary to the Heart Sutra—the best known and most popular of all Buddhist scriptures—reveals both its direct and hidden meaning. The author skillfully 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. He shows how we can develop and apply this profound understanding in our everyday lives in such a way that we come to experience a deep and unshakeable happiness.
