Overview

Celestial Music: Sutras of Emptiness by Tai Sheridan, Ph.D.

Poet-Philosopher and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan presents modern interpretations of the Lotus, Diamond, Heart Wisdom, and Loving Kindness Sutras in accessible and inspirational verses. The Buddhist sutras express a path of enlightened living based on curiosity, good will, wisdom, and compassion. They journey through the depths of human experience: living and dying, love and loss, anguish and peace

Each sutra is unique: The Lotus Sutra represents the Bodhisattva path, and is a lengthy compilation of parables in an archaic style. The Diamond Sutra is a short but dense treatise on non-dual dialectics which illuminate the ground of Being. The Heart Wisdom Sutra expresses the balance of form and emptiness, and the Loving Kindness Sutra models living a compassionate life.

This version of the Lotus Sutra is the first English interpretation that condenses and synthesizes the entire Lotus Sutra into a shortened poem and mantra.
