The Heart Sutra is a condensed version of much longer Heart Sutras. It really contains all we need. It teaches the direct path: seeing directly into our true nature. We can let go of all identities by coming this moment. The meditation then focuses on Consciousness. The mantra coming at the end of the Sutra can be seen as a summary of the whole sutra. Then during the final 10 minutes of the guided meditation I introduce the “Ah Mantra”. Pronounced as Ah, it can be chanted out loud as the ultimate teaching of freedom, liberating all beings. Finally, as Bernie Glassman teaches, “even the Ah is unnecessary, for this very moment is the Wisdom Literature; this very moment is the perfection of wisdom”.
