The Wisdom Path

with 3 comments

A short walk from the Tian Tan Buddha on Hong Kong’s Lantau Island is the wisdom path.

Completed in May 2005, the large-scale outdoor exhibit features a series of tall wooden panels with the words of the Heart Sutra etched upon them. The project was enacted after Professor Jao Tsung-I offered the original calligraphy of the Heart Sutra to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The Heart Sutra is said to be the most popular Buddhist scripture.

The exhibit is comprised of 38 columns measuring 8 to 10 meters each in height.

  1. Were you wise at the end of the walk?

    • Cannot confirm the walk helped in acquiring more wisdom, but by the end, definitely felt more relaxed.
