I must have chanted the Heart Sutra several thousand times, perhaps more.
If I imagine that these have occurred within my life, and my life occurs within time, suffering can never be alleviated.
Although it may sound absurd, if we say the Heart Sutra is chanting me, is chanting all practitioners, in all times, at this time, then something which we have held tight and concealed can start to alter.
And it is not just the Heart Sutra.
We have to understand that we are not the container of life, we are its’ expression.
