The Maha Prajna Paramita Hrdaya Sutra

( The Heart Sutra )
 

FREE to watch/listen.

FREE to download.

The Prajna literature is very extensive;  it covers approximately twenty years of the Buddha's teachings.  

The Heart Sutra is composed of excerpts from the Maha Prajna Paramita texts, and simple words were carefully employed to convey profound meanings.

The Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara was chosen as a model for the rest of us.  This sutra was spoken by the Buddha in order to guide his disciples to Supreme Complete Perfected Enlightenment.

Many translations exist and here I present one.  I recommend reading at least 2 or 3 different translations.

The Maha Prajna (or Prajña) Paramita Hrdaya Sutra

 

 

Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva

When practicing deeply the Prajna Paramita

Perceives that all five Skandhas are empty

And is saved from 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 form

The same is true of feelings, perceptions, Impulses, consciousness

 

Sariputra, all Dharmas are marked with emptiness

They do not appear or disappear

Are not tainted or pure

Do not increase or decrease

 

Therefore in emptiness no form

No feelings, perceptions, impulses, consciousness

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 consciousness

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 Bodhisattva depends on Prajna Paramita

And his mind is no hindrance

Without any hindrance, 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:

The Mahajrya Buddhist Tradition observes the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha.  However, our tradition also acknowledges the wisdom of 4 other masters; Jesus, Krishna, Melkitzedeq and Maha Vajra.

Mahajrya Buddhism, although non-orthodox, is based on or considered a sub-branch of Mahayana Buddhism.  This Buddhism is more focused on the practice of embodying states of being and therefore is a highly efficient and fast way to advance on the path of self-mastery and enlightenment.

Freedom

is

absolute

Technique is paramount.  Practice is everything.  But FREEDOM IS ABSOLUTE.

Do as little or as much work on yourself as you choose and don't be hard on yourself.  Believe in yourself until you are ready to believe in something far greater from which your power emanates.

I am here to help you find your power.
