The Heart Sutra: Thunderclaps 5 and 6

by Hridayagita

This is talk 4 of 4, given on a Mitra retreat at Taraloka, exploring the Heart Sutra.

(Please note there are references to two more personal talks given earlier in the retreat - these are not available on FBA)

"the Bodhisattva gains Enlightenment and becomes a Buddha only by relying on the Perfection of Wisdom. There is no other way" Sangharakshita - Wisdom Beyond Words

In this talk, Hridayagita takes us back to the raft of the Dharma. She discusses the need to deepen our faith in the Dharma and our faith that Enlightenment is possible to be able to "rely on the Perfection of Wisdom".

How we do that is part of us discovering our own way to practice. She gives examples from her own experience of faith and also how we can recognise when our faith has been lacking (or at least well covered up!).

This talk is part of the series The Heart Sutra: Thunderclaps of Reality.
