What means Heart Sutra:
The Heart Sutra shows us how we can free ourselves from suffering. The cause of the suffering- because we divided the world into: „Self“ and „Not-Self“, and we deeply believe in „Self“.
Because of „ignorance“ , we are attracted by the appearances, mistaking illuson to be reality, then we fall into Samsara. Heart Sutra teaches us, how we can release from suffering and how we can escape from the Samsara.
At the end, we reach the path to enlightenment and we become like Buddha, where we help others to be enlightened.

Note of Thanks

I thanked those who took part in the review of African trip on 31.10.2015 in Hamburg
and their attention and am looking forward to next review.

The first meeting in Hamburg at Family Liu’s house was very constructive and nice.
Friends from both Hamburg and Bremen were able to exchange and involve more
in ACC group’s job within 2 hours. Nice tea and snacks like cheese cake, sticky rice balls
etc. were provided so we had a very nice get-together at their house. Many thanks to
Mr. Liu and his wife.
