Maha Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra
Maha Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, doing deep Prajna Paramita
Clearly saw emptiness of all the five conditions,
Thus completely relieving misfortune and pain.
O Shariputra, form is no other than emptiness, emptiness no other than form.
Form is exactly emptiness, emptiness exactly form.
Sensation, conception, discrimination, awareness are likewise like this.
O Shariputra, all dharmas are forms of emptiness, not born, not destroyed,
Not stained, not pure; without loss, without gain.
So in emptiness there is no form, no sensation, conception, discrimination, awareness.
No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind.
No color, sound, smell, taste, touch, phenomena.
No realm of sight, no realm of consciousness,
No ignorance and no end to ignorance.
No old age and death and no end to old age and death.
No suffering, no cause of suffering. No extinguishing, no path,
No wisdom and no gain. No gain and thus
The Bodhisattva lives Prajna Paramita
With no hindrance in the mind, no hindrance, therefore no fear;
Far beyond deluded thoughts, this is Nirvana.
All past, present and future Buddhas live Prajna Paramita
And therefore attain anuttara-samyak-sambodhi.
Therefore know Prajna Paramita is the
Great mantra, the vivid mantra,
The best mantra, the unsurpassable mantra,
It completely clears all pain; this is the truth, not a lie.
So set forth the Prajna Paramita mantra,
Set forth this mantra and say:
Gate! Gate! Paragate! Parasamgate!
Bodhi Svaha! Prajna Heart Sutra!
Buddha Nature pervades the whole universe existing right here now.
In reciting the MAHA PRAJNA PARAMITA HEART SUTRA we dedicate its merits to:
Shakyamuni Buddha Daiosho
The all pervading and everlasting Three Treasures
All Arhats and Bodhisattva Mahasattvas
And their relations throughout the Dharma worlds
May our sincere vows to accomplish the Buddha Way be realized together
