The Heart Sutra is one of three major texts of Buddhist Teachings (the other two being the Lotus Sutra and the Diamond Sutra). This talk looks at the historical background of the Sutra and examines the very profound concepts that are presented in it.

The presentation will be given by Dianne Kynaston, Australia. Dianne is a long-standing member of the Australian Section of the Theosophical Society and has held several administrative positions over the years, including National President and served on the editorial committee for Theosophy in Australia. She has lectured at Lodges/Branches around Australia, New Zealand, and the Indo-Pacific region and travelled extensively throughout the world, visiting many sacred places.

Dianne’s main interests are: Theosophical history, myths and legends from various cultures and the common themes found within them all. Dianne is also interested in the role of the Feminine on the Spiritual Path.

This talk is part of the Theosofest 2017 - Open Day which includes several inspiring talks on spiritual topics which will be held on 5 March from 10am - 4pm. All are welcome!

The second presentation will be on 'Tibetan Landscapes' at 7:30pm, also by Dianne Kynaston for the public, members and friends. This will be an overview of Tibetan history and religion, followed by a showing of Dianne’s own photos from a visit in 2007, accompanied by Tibetan music. There is plenty of time for questions and interaction with the audience.

These talks by international visiting speaker Dianne Kynaston are sponsored by the Theosophical Society in New Zealand Inc.
