About Event:

The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra (the Heart Sutra) is perhaps the most widely known sutra of the Mahayana tradition and is often recited daily by practitioners all over the world, particularly before receiving Dharma teachings. We too recite it before teachings during the Basic Program teachings.

Part of the Prajnaparamita Sutras, the Heart Sutra is a condensed presentation of the wisdom of emptiness as revealed by Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) through the power of the Buddha, on Vulture’s Peak in Rajgir, India, to Shariputra, one of the Buddha’s main disciples.

It has been called “the most frequently used and recited text in the entire Mahayana Buddhist tradition”, translated into English dozens of times from Chinese, Sanskrit and Tibetan.

Geshela will devote four weeks of our study program schedule (three days per week) to this profound text, with assistance from Tutor Ven Kartson and other senior students.

 

About Teacher:

Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the Dharma and inspires our community. He became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He teaches in Tibetan with the help of his professional translator. Ven Kartson.

Geshe Tsultrim has a warm hearted, caring and practical approach to teaching Dharma. He has been the resident Geshe at Chenrezig Institute since 2014. Since then he has taught Dharma both inside the Gompa and by the example he sets outside of the Gompa.

Ven Kartson, a basic program graduate and the interpreter at Chenrezig Institute for 15 years, also teaches the tutorials for these in depth teachings. He has a very clear understanding of the material and is able to explain the details of Geshela’s teachings with good humour and day-to-day examples.

The recommended fee for this 3 week course is $180 for either in person attendance in the gompa or online, with a minimum charge of $60. Please never let finances stop you from studying the dharma. If even the minimum charge is too much for you feel free to contact the coordinator on [email protected] to ask for a further discount.
