  1. This is a book to study, to ponder, to contemplate It is an in depth commentary on the Buddhist sacred text, The Heart Sutra and not always easy to understand What I enjoyed was how the author didn t just comment on each line of this short sutra, but also explained the origins and etymology of individual words and names which also put the meaning of the sutra into historical perspective.


  2. Very readable book though careful attention must still be paid on a complex subject that can be rather impenetrable and confusing I strongly recommend starting here instead of with one of the same author s longer and scholarly works on the subject One of the best all round dharma books I ve read Lacks an index, which is bothersome, as indexing helps one to look up and verify references to unfamiliar terms I ll still give 5 stars, based on smoothness and clarity of exposition.


  3. I found it was not quick read Very in depth interpretation of the Heat Sutra from the Mahayana perspective In many places I needed my trusty for a glossary of terms Will definitely read again to better grasp concepts.


  4. I haven t chosen any stars because this is a book and a topic to which stars don t apply The text is excellent and helped me make sense of a complex Buddhist Sutra.


  5. Intense Heavy going in bits, profoundly clear in others Definitely one to re read later Took me seven months to read.


  6. Highly recommended Very accessible Will be very helpful when scholarly text overload our senses, which have their purpose, and bring us back to the essence of practice.
