Prajñā Paramitā Retreat – Ways of Practicing


Besides reciting, studying, meditating and thinking about the Prajñā Paramitā, there are other experiential ways to practice it.

One way of practicing the Prajñā Paramitā is to recite the famous mantra at the end of the Heart Sutra. The recording here is of that recitation. Enjoy!

Another is to do calligraphy of the Sanskrit letter “A” (pronounced ah). [todo: get pictures of the calligraphy practice we did].
