4.51  ·  Rating details ·  39 ratings  ·  3 reviews
An Arrow to the Heart is an exciting, trail-blazing, non-traditional translation and commentary of the Heart Sutra, an ancient and highly revered text in Mahayana Buddhism.

Ken McLeod's created an informal analysis of the Heart Sutra. It's very powerful, though not an easy read, and would be meaningless to anyone who hadn't gone a few rounds with Buddhism. I'll probably keep reading this periodically.

I found it hard to see the connection between the thoughts of each page and the phrase it was associated with. I'm sure others will find it a fantastic way to contemplate the Heart Sutra.
