Form is empty. Emptiness is form.
Emptiness is not other than form; form is also not other than emptiness.
In the same way, feeling, discrimination, compositional factors, and consciousness are empty.

Join us in this weekend retreat, where we will hear an authoritative explanation of the Heart Sutra (Tib. Sherab Nyingpo) one of the concise sutras in the Perfection of Wisdom genre of Buddhist literature. Learn the implied meaning behind the words and how to meditate on emptiness.
