Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra

Form is emptiness; emptiness is form.
Form does not differ from emptiness; Emptiness does not differ from form;
Form itself is emptiness, emptiness itself is form.
So too are feeling, perception, formation and consciousness.
All dharmas are empty of characteristics.
No birth, no cessation, no defilement, no purity, no increase and no decrease
in emptiness there is no form.
No feeling, no preception, no formation, no consciousness.
No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind.
No appearance, sound, smell, taste, object of touch, dharmas.
No field of eyes, up to and including no field of mind consciousness.
No ignorance, no end to ignorance,
Up to no old age and death, no ending of old age and death.
No sufferings, no origin (of sufferings), no cessation (of sufferings), no path. No wisdom, no attainment, no non-attainment.
Since the Bodhisattva have no attainment,
He abides by means of Prajna-Paramita with unobscured mind.
Since there is no obscuration of mind, there is no fear.
He transcends falsity and attains complete parinirvana.
All Buddhas of the three times by means of Prajna Paramita
fully awaken to unsurpassable truth, complete enlightenment.
Therefore, know that Prajna-Paramita is a Great Mantra.
A Mantra of great insight, an unsurpassable Mantra, an unequalled Mantra,
that calms all sufferings should be known as truth without deception.
The Prajna-Paramitra Mantra is recited thus…

      Tadyatha, Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha.
      Eng Trans: Gone gone, gone beyond, gone completely beyond. So be it.

Thank you so much for your love and support.
