I am very happy that we are now going to study this profound sutra together” Anam Thubten In his book: The Fragrance of Emptiness: A Commentary on the Heart Sutra,  Tibetan Buddhist teacher Anam Thubten explores the meaning of the verses of the Heart Sutra, discovering scriptural and practical wisdom that can help us on our own journey to the great awakening.
