    1. 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.


    2. 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.


    3. Wonderful commentary on the Heart Sutra to reflection upon. He gave a talk which was fantastic!One of my top 10 Buddhist books.
