"The Heart Sutra," also known as the "Prajna-paramita Hridaya Sutra," is one of the most well-known and revered Mahayana Buddhist scriptures. It encapsulates the essence of the Perfection of Wisdom teachings and is considered a concise expression of profound wisdom.

The sutra begins with Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, the embodiment of compassion, sharing insights gained from deep practice of prajna-paramita, the perfection of wisdom. Avalokitesvara elucidates the emptiness (shunyata) of all phenomena, including the five aggregates (form, sensation, perception, mental formations, and consciousness), and emphasizes the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things.

Through the dialogue between Avalokitesvara and Sariputra, the sutra expounds on the nature of emptiness, the absence of inherent existence in phenomena, and the transcendence of all dualities. It teaches that ultimate reality is beyond conceptualization and cannot be grasped through ordinary perception.

The Heart Sutra concludes with a mantra, "Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha," which encapsulates the essence of the sutra's teachings. It translates to "Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone completely beyond, enlightenment, hail!"

Exquisite Buddhist scriptures


Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, when deeply practicing prajna-paramita, clearly saw that all five aggregates are empty and thus relieved all suffering.

Sariputra, form does not differ from emptiness, emptiness does not differ from form. Form itself is emptiness, emptiness itself form. Sensations, perceptions, formations, and consciousness are also like this.

Sariputra, all dharmas are marked by emptiness; they neither arise nor cease, are neither defiled nor pure, neither increase nor decrease.

Therefore, given emptiness, there is no form, no sensation, no perception, no formation, no consciousness; no eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind; no sight, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch, no object of mind; no realm of sight and so forth until no realm of consciousness; no ignorance, no end of ignorance, no old age and death, no end of old age and death; no suffering, no cause of suffering, no cessation of suffering, no path, no wisdom, no attainment, and no non-attainment.

Therefore, because there is no attainment, bodhisattvas rely on prajna-paramita, and their minds have no hindrance. Without any hindrance, there is no fear. Far beyond all inverted views, one realizes nirvana.

All buddhas of the past, present, and future rely on prajna-paramita and thereby attain unsurpassed, complete, perfect enlightenment.

Therefore, know the prajna-paramita as the great transcendent mantra, the great bright mantra, the supreme mantra, the incomparable mantra, which removes all suffering and is true, not false. Therefore, we proclaim the prajna-paramita mantra, the mantra that says:

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.
