Reviews

"With lively humor and deep scholarly knowledge, Mitra Karl Brunnh lzl brilliantly unpacks the profundity of the Heart S u tra here for modern readers. In practical and accessible ways, he invites us to join the great practitioners of India and Tibet in contemplating the Heart Sutra's wisdom. We are fortunate to have teachers of Karl's acumen among the growing body of inspiring Western Buddhist teachers."--Dzogchen Ponlop author of Rebel Buddha and Mind Beyond Death

"When the Buddha revealed the Praj aparamita sutras, teaches Karl Brunnh lzl, the arhats in attendance were so shocked by what they were hearing that they died on the spot. The Heart Attack Sutra seeks to preserve this same spiritual shock for Western minds (but perhaps without the grim consequences that Buddha's earlier students had to face!) by presenting and commenting in detail on the Heart Sutra, arguably the most well-known sutra in the Mahayana tradition."--Mandala Magazine
