The 'Shingyo' or 'Heart Sutra" is chanted several times daily in every Zen Buddhist monastery.
It is called the Heart Sutra because it is the core of Zen Buddhism. The current Dalai Lama explains it as both an instruction for practice and as a device for measuring one's own level of spiritual attainment.
Ben's piece will be a 10m x 1m long version on a single roll of Japanese paper.
The opening is this Saturday the 18th of July at 4pm, Brunswick Bound, Upstairs Gallery,
361 Sydney Road Brunswick.
