Great Wisdom Heart Sutra
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva deeply practising the Prajnaparamita
saw that the five skandhas were empty, and overcame all suffering. Sariputra,
form is not different from emptiness, and emptiness does not differ from
form. Form is emptiness, and emptiness is form. The same is true for perception,
conception, volition, and consciousness. Sariputra, all Dharmas are forms
of emptiness, not born, not destroyed, not defiled, not pure, not increasing,
and not decreasing. Therefore, in emptiness, there is no form, no perception,
conception, volition, or consciousness. No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body,
or mind. No sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, or Dharma. No realm of
sight. No realm of consciousness. No ignorance, and no end of ignorance.
No old age and death, and no end to old age and death. No suffering, no
cause of suffering, no termination of suffering, and no way. No wisdom,
and no attainment. Because there is nothing to be attained, Bodhisattvas
relying on Prajnaparamita have no attachment and hindrance in their minds.
No attachment and hindrance, therefore no fear. Far beyond deluded thoughts,
this is nirvana. The Buddhas of past, present and future, also, by relying
on the Prajnaparamita attain supreme enlightenment. Therefore, realize
the Prajnaparamita is the great mantra, the supreme mantra, the unequalled
mantra. It can eradicate all suffering. It is true, not false. Therefore,
set forth the Prajnaparamita Mantra, saying: Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate,
Bodhisvaha, Prajnaparamita Sutra.
