Mindfulness Meditation Centers

— Evergreen Firehouse, Evergreen, Colorado* —
To become awakened and enlighten the mind, there are many sutras of the Buddha that are important to understand, but there is only one that has to be fully understood to permanently overcome the suffering of ignorance. That Sutra is the Prajnaparamita, called the second turning of the wheel of dharma. To transform the ignorance of ordinary mind to the mind of perfect wisdom, it’s essential to penetrate the deepest meaning of this teaching. The condensed form of this series of sutras is called the Heart Sutra.
The Buddha taught 100,000 verses of Sutra to expound on the (Buddha’s) understanding of the wisdom of his mind. In these verses he clearly described his perfect view of reality, “the way things are”. The most famous teaching arises from his perfection in the “Heart Sutra”, describing the pure essence of this perfect vision of reality in just 100 verses.
Please join us as we take an unusual and deep dive in to one of the most mysterious and rarely presented teachings on the nature of reality. We will learn how to apply this instruction to every experience of life and mind. To fully understand the nature of reality is to fully understand the nature of mind, the mind of pure awareness.
Perfection is not something you attain it is the discovery of your true nature.
