The heart sutra


Great Wisdom Beyond Wisdom Heart Sutra

Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, when practicing deeply the Prajna Paramita,
perceived that all five skandhas in their own being are empty and was saved
from all suffering.

O Shariputra, form does not differ from emptiness; emptiness does not
differ from form. That which is form is emptiness; that which is emptiness
form. The same is true of feelings, perceptions, formations, consciousness.

O Shariputra, all dharmas are marked with emptiness. They do not appear nor
disappear, are not tainted nor pure, do not increase nor decrease.
Therefore in emptiness: no form, no feelings, no perceptions, no
formations, no consciousness; no eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no
body, no mind; no color, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch, no object
of mind; no realm of eyes...until no realm of mind-consciousness; no
ignorance and also no extinction of it...until no old-age and death and
also no extinction of it; no suffering, no origination, no stopping, no
path, no cognition, also no attainment with nothing to attain.

A bodhisattva depends on Prajna Paramita and the mind is no hindrance.
Without any hindrance no fears exist. Far apart from every perverted view
one dwells in  nirvana. In the three worlds all buddhas depend on Prajna
Paramita and attain unsurpassed complete perfect enlightenment. Therefore,
know the Prajna Paramita is the great transcendent mantra, is the great
bright mantra, is the utmost mantra, is the supreme mantra which is able to
relieve all suffering and is true not false; so proclaim the Prajna
Paramita mantra, proclaim the mantra that says:

Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha

All buddhas ten directions three times
All beings bodhisattvas mahasattvas
Wisdom beyond wisdom Maha Prajna Paramita
