The Heart Sutra is probably the best known and most important of the Buddhist texts and is often recited by monks and lay Buddhists.
It is called the Heart Sutra, because it contains the core of the Prajhna Paramita . The main theme is the Perfection of Wisdom (also known as perfect wisdom, transcendent knowledge or transcendental wisdom, Prajhna), which means the emptiness of everything and every phenomenon, which is not to say the non-existence, but the lack of substance, strength and immutability.
Heart Sutra of Infinite Wisdom
Heart Sutra of the Perfection of Transcendental Knowledge
Bodhisattva saw during the practice of the Prajna Paramita the five Skandhas emptying themselves of all the suffering and difficulties.
The form is empty, so there are no difficulties to distinguish.
The feeling is empty, and therefore there is no feeling.
The mind is empty and therefore there is no knowing.
The will is empty and therefore there’s no doing.
Consciousness is empty and therefore there is no awakening.
Without form there is no emptiness.
Without emptiness, no form.
Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form.
The feeling, thinking, will and consciousness are such as well.
Sariptura, all these dharmas are phenomena
Neither creating nor destructive,
Neither polluting nor pure becoming,
Neither increasing, nor decreasing.
This empty Dharma are no past, no future, no presence.
Therefore, there is emptiness,
No form, no feeling, thought, will nor consciousness,
No eyes, ears, tongue, body, conscience,
No hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling,
No world to observe, no World to perceive ,
No ignorance and no end to ignorance.
No old age and death and no end to old age and death,
No suffering, longing, destruction, path / road.
No wisdom and no achievement.
Nothing can be arisen that is achievable
The Bodhisattva relies on Prajna Paramita.
Therefore, it is known without obstructions.
and therefore no fear or doubt.
Far beyond deluded thinking, suffering and difficulties.
