Lesson One Overview

Encountering Enigma

The Heart Sutra is an enigma—a millennium-old enigma that is yet to be solved. In this first lesson of the course Kaz and Roshi introduce their translation of the Heart Sutra and we begin to become familiar with the enigma. You will have an opportunity to chant the sutra and consider your own first encounter with this scripture.


In this lesson, you will:

  • Compare a common English translation of the Heart Sutra with the new translation from Kaz and Roshi
  • Consider your own first encounter with the Heart Sutra
  • Chant the Heart Sutra
