This episode is a continuation of last week’s episode on The Heart Sutra. In this episode, Professor Thurman discusses the questions: How does free will work? What does it mean that we are all effected by causes and conditions? He also discusses how shunyata, or voidness, is a scientific discovery, not just a mystic philosophy.
This episode was recorded on July 27, 2015 at the “Buddha and the Yogis” retreat at Menla Mountain Retreat, taught by David Swenson, John Campbell & Robert Thurman.
