What is the Heart Sutra?

The Heart Sutra is one of the most common sutra recited in temples and monasteries worldwide.  While being the shortest, at 260 Chinese characters, it expounds deep and profound teachings of Emptiness as taught by the Buddha.

色不异空、空不异色。

色即是空、空即是色。

What is Emptiness and how can we apply it in our life today?
How do we recite this sutra and how can we change ourselves so that we can become happier?
