After 1400 years, the Heart Sutra—said to express the Buddha’s most profound teaching—continues to offer a precious transmission of transcendental wisdom. This specially recorded program is a captivating dialogue between Adyashanti and the Executive Director of Open Gate Sangha, Jerilyn Munyon, as they explore with earnest curiosity the vast depths of this sacred text. They invite us to directly experience the dynamic, often missed distinctions between the imaginal world and the heart of reality—ever-deepening our experience of the Heart Sutra’s teaching.
Quotes from this Download:
“The Heart Sutra demands that you have to come up to its level of realization to understand what it’s trying to say.”
“You can’t shove reality into any conceptual box.”
“I remember the experience of looking at things, and realizing that I could look into them for a long time. And as I continued to look into them, I would see something else, and then I would see something else. And that is how I’ve gone about my life: looking into things. Just looking. It seems like the Heart Sutra is the same way, you can just keep looking deeper into the face of reality.” ~Jerilyn Munyon
“You’ve got to put yourself on the line. Even if it’s just meditating. Keep showing up. Don’t worry about how you’re showing up. Sometimes you’ll show up really well. Sometimes you’ll barely be able to be there. But there’s something about that willingness to just show up. Just do it.”
Recorded in San Jose, California on February 19, 2016.
