The Heart Sūtra aka “The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom” is a popular sutra in Mahāyāna Buddhism.
The sutra states, “Form is empty, emptiness is form.” The sutra can be seen as a statement about the reality of the material world that we hear, see, taste and touch.
I understand the sutra to mean: There is no there there. Or here. Only emptiness.
The Heart Sutra is considered to be the most famous text in the Buddhist tradition. It is also the favorite sutra of my Qompany co-host, Auset O’Neal.
Auset recorded her very own version of the Heart Sutra and I made a video to go with it.
Please watch and enjoy our version of the Heart Sutra!
