Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra


Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara,
Sitting in the depth of knowledge,
Lit glow of his wisdom five elements
And saw that all of them are empty.
After this enlightenment he overcame the pain.

Listen, Shariputra,
Form - a void, emptiness - is the form
Form - is nothing but emptiness,
Void - it is nothing but a form.
The same is true for the senses,
Perceptions of mental activity and consciousness.
Listen, Shariputra,
All dharmas are empty properties.
They do not created and not exterminable,
Not dirty and not cleaned,
Not grow or shrink.

Hence, in the void
There is no form, no feelings, no perceptions,
No mental activity or consciousness.
There is no dependent origination
No eyes, no ears, no nose,
No tongue, no body, no mind.
There is no form, no sound, no smell,
No taste, no touch, no object of mind.
No sphere of elements, ranging from eye
And the ending of consciousness.

And it is not fading, from ignorance
And ending with death and decay.
There is no source of suffering and misery,
No Cessation of Suffering
And there is no way to end suffering.
There is no wisdom and no progress.

Since there is no progress, all the Bodhisattvas,
Relying on perfect wisdom,
No obstacles are in your mind.
With no obstacles, they overcome fear,
Forever exempt from error
And reach true nirvana.
Thanks to this perfect wisdom,
All the Buddhas of the past, present and future
Enter into a full, true and total enlightenment.

Therefore, to know that perfect wisdom
Expressed unsurpassed mantra,
The highest mantra, devastating suffering
Perfect and true.
Hence, the mantra Prajnaparamita
Must be declared. Here is the mantra:

Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.
Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.
Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha.
