SUT532 - Heart Sūtra (3 Units)
Textbooks: The Heart of the Universe: Exploring the Heart Sutra by Mu Soeng
                   The Heart Sūtra (Red Pine edition, Amazon paperback)
Though The Heart Sutra is an ancient Buddhist scripture, scholars are now discovering how it offers insight into the nature of an ultimate reality perceived through intuitive wisdom. Fascinatingly, quantum physicists are increasingly discovering interesting parallels between science and the basic insights of The Heart Sutra. In this important offering, Mu Soeng shows how the intellectual and the intuitive can begin to meet. In offering a commentary on this important piece of the world’s great religious literature, The Heart of the Universe establishes a broad context to encounter The Heart Sutra on many levels — historical, spiritual, and empirical — each serving to interdependently illuminate the other.
