The Heart Sutra is the most famous of all Buddhist texts. Thousands of commentaries and books have been written about it, but none of them like this one. In this fresh and original interpretation, Andre Doshim Halaw challenges conventional readings of the Heart Sutra by arguing that the scripture is not actually an exposition about emptiness, but in fact a meditation manual. Drawing upon his experience as a Zen teacher and meditation instructor, Andre demonstrates how the sutra uses the ancient Indian meditation technique called Neti-Neti (meaning "Not this, not that") to reveal the Absolute, the unconditioned reality of the Buddha.
Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? To look into a mirror is to simply capture the reflection of the object of desire peering in. A mirror will only show us the outward appearance, never penetrating beyond the surface where there is so much more seen. As one may say, beauty is only skin deep or for you pasta lovers like Prego it is all in there. A mirror into my HEART is my way of sharing my beliefs, thoughts and deep inner feelings which are housed in the chambers of my heart. Whether its from my personal beliefs or worldly shared experiences of others. So from my heart to your heart I share with you a part of me, A Mirror into my HEART.
