What do other teachers say about this book?

Spoken in a voice that is neither pious nor academic, hectoring
nor detached, An Arrow to the Heart is a fine example of the new
wave in contemporary Buddhist writing. In its quietly re l e n t l e s s
way, this pithy and unorthodox commentary to the Heart Sutra
leaves you withnowhere to stand but right here.
-- Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism Without Beliefs

To read this book is to sit at the knee of a multifaceted and multitalented teacher as he unfolds the Dharma. It is a unique tapestry woven of several elements, each engrossing on their own: a gathering of original and lyrical poems of enlightenment, an unfolding of erudite commentary on the sutra, and an interesting collection of religious and secular quotations relevant to the sutra. I encourage you to savor it one page at a time.
-- Chozen Bays, author of Jizo Bodhisattva: Modern Healing and Traditional Buddhist Practice
