A Buddhist Studies Class

Emptiness, with Shastri Debbie Zarate

Five Wednesday evenings, July 19-Aug. 16, 7:00pm-9:00pm.

$110 program price. $130 patron. Ask us about our generosity policy.

Still time to join: 4 remaining classes: $80 price.

The Heart Sutra says, “Form is emptiness; emptiness itself is form. Emptiness is no other than form; form is no other than emptiness.  In the same way, feeling, perception, formation, and consciousness are emptiness.  Thus, Sariputra, all dharmas are emptiness.”

The story goes that when the Buddha first taught this, several highly realized disciples died of heart attacks!  Yet, today we can read it without missing a single heart beat. In this course, we will study and contemplate the Sutra to bring these teachings alive so that they can change the condition of our hearts, too.
