Ratnavandana offers a personal sharing of her reflections on a six month solitary retreat where she was focussing on the Heart Sutra.
With Avalokitesvara as her guide, she was hoping to deepen her understanding of the emptiness of the five skandhas as well as exploring how to bring all the ordinary everyday activities of life into the realm of the sacred.
This excerpt includes a reading evocation on the Five Buddha Mandala.
From the talk Glimpses of Emptiness given on a retreat for mitras held at Taraloka: The Heart Sutra - Thunderclaps of Reality, 2020.
