It carries and embodies core teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, and yet many know little about its provenance, meaning, or power. Here is a chance to hear about this beautiful and potent sutra from one of its foremost translators in the West. As Porter says, "The Heart Sutra encapsulates that moment when Mahayana Buddhism first arose and delineates how it differs from what came before. If the wisdom teachings of Prajnaparamita are the mother of buddhas, then the Heart Sutra is their womb."</p> <p >Bill Porter is an American author and translator of Chinese and Sanskrit texts who translates under the name &ldquo;Red Pine.&rdquo; He was born in Los Angeles in 1943 and grew up in Idaho. After serving in the U.S. Army, he graduated from the University of California with a degree in anthropology. He then dropped out of graduate school at Columbia University and moved to a Buddhist monastery in Taiwan. Porter lived with the monks and nuns for four years, then worked at English-language radio stations in Taiwan and Hong Kong. His translations include Chinese classical texts, poetry, and Buddhist sutras such as the Taoteching, the Heart Sutra, and Collected Songs of Cold Mountain. He currently lives in Port Townsend, Wash.<a name="0.1__GoBack"></a></p> CC Men's Basketball Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:28:06 MST <p><em>Saturday, February 2, 2013 2:00 PM</em></p><p>vs. Dallas</p> Super Bowl Party Thu, 31 Jan 2013 14:15:32 MST <p><em>Sunday, February 3, 2013 4:00 PM</em></p><p>Free wings and tater tots!!
