Would you like to practice the Heart Sutra in the long autumn evenings?

Let's start by copying the sutra (写経)with a brush pen as we do at Japanese temples. A set of copying Heart Sutra ( with a pen) costs about $20. (Of course, you can also use a brush and sumi ink)

I will try to find the best way to practice for each student.
Whenever you have trouble writing or are unsure of the stroke order, I will always be there to help you.
Write over and over again.. 

from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. $80 (Monthly 4 classes)
$25 for each class
I hope it will be a time to calm your mind!
