Dalai Lama: Discourse on the Heart Sutra
The Dalai Lama discusses and explains the Heart Sutra, the succinct but profound sutra regarded as the summation of the wisdom of Buddha.
An interview with the Dalai Lama by Japanese producer Kozo Otani in which His Holiness answers questions about the Heart Sutra, its practice and meaning, including its use in daily life. The Dalai Lama explains the meaning of the mantra in the Heart Sutra and discusses emptiness, interdependence and infinite altruism. He also particularly recommends combining the study of the Heart Sutra and Prajnaparamita with the understanding of Buddha nature.
