Aura Glaser comments on the truth of Buddhism’s Heart Sutra in 26 words — from A to Z.
The Alphabet Heart Sutra came to me whole, arriving with the light of morning. I followed the inner prompting and immediately wrote it down. And once it was written, I felt moved to share it with others.
I have lived with, breathed with, recited, and loved the Heart Sutra for many years. I offer this poem/prayer with joyful appreciation for the ever-evolving fearless proclamations of timeless truths. May it inspire and illuminate.
To the Great Mother everywhere present, nowhere found, I bow.
To the Great Mother in your endless, luminous, empty guises, I bow.
To the Great Mother, essence of my heart, I bow.
