Bodhisattva Avalokateshvara

 

The Heart Sutra

 

Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva when practicing deeply the Prajna Paramita perceives that all five skandhas are empty and is saved from all suffering and distress.

Sariputra, form does not differ from emptiness, emptiness does not differ from form. That which is form is emptiness, that which is emptiness is form. The same is true of feelings, perceptions, impulses, conciousness.

Sariputra, all dharmas are marked with emptiness. They do not appear nor disappear, are not tainted nor pure, do not increase nor decrease, therefore in emptiness no form, no feelings, perceptions, impulses conciousness. No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind, no color, no sound, no smell, no taste,no touch, no object of mind, no realm of eyes, and so forth until no realm of mind conciousness. No ignorance

and also no extinction of it, and so forth until no old age and death and also no extinction of them. No suffering, no origination, no stopping, no path, no cognition, also no attainment with nothing to attain.

The Bodhisattve depends on Prajna Paramita and his mind is no hinderance, without any hinderance no fears exist. Far apart from every perverted view he dwells in Nirvana.

In the three worlds all Buddhas depend on Prajna Paramita and attain anuttara samyak sambodhi.

Therefore know that Prajna Paramita is the great transcendent mantra, is the great bright mantra, is the utmost mantra, is the supreme mantra which is able to relieve all suffering and is true, not false. So proclaim the Prajna Paramita mantra, proclaim the mantra which says;

gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha!

gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha!

gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha!
