The Heart Sutra

Heart Attack Sutra

The radical message of the Heart Sutra, one of Buddhism’s most famous texts, is a sweeping attack on everything we hold most dear: our troubles, the world as we know it, even the teachings of the Buddha himself. Several of the Buddha’s followers are said to have suffered heart attacks and died when they first heard its assertion of the basic groundlessness of our existence—hence the title of this book. Overcoming fear, the Buddha teaches, is not to be accomplished by shutting down or building walls around oneself, but instead by opening up to understand the illusory nature of everything we fear—including ourselves. In his book of teachings, The Heart Attack Sutra, Karl Brunnhölzl guides practitioners through this ‘crazy’ sutra to the wisdom and compassion that lie at its core.

An evening to learn about the Heart Sutra! Mitra Karl will be teaching on his new book, The Heart Attack Sutra, on April 24th from 7:30-9pm at 55 State Rd., Media, PA
