The Heart of Sutras



This should be called the heart of sutras rather than a heart sutra. Very little in the sutra refers to the heart, love, compassion or meta bhavana.

Here are some excllent explanation of the sutra.


prajna paramita hridaya sutra
(perfect wisdom heart sutra)

aryavalokitesvaro bodhisattvo
(Saintly Avalokateshvara bodhisattva)

gambhiram prajnaparamita caryam caramano vyavalokayati
(deep perfect wisdom action perform luminously)

sma panca skandhas tams ca sva bhava sunyam
(saw five bundles them own nature empty)
THEIR EMPTY NATURE
pasyati sma iha sariputra
(crossed beyond all suffering and difficulty. Shariputra:)

rupam sunyata (...) va rupam rupan na prithak
(form emptiness evidently form form not different)
THIS EMPTY NATURE OF IMAGE IS THE IMAGE NOT SEPARATE
sunyata sunyataya na prithag rupam
(emptiness emptiness not different form)
EMPTINESS IS ALSO EMPTY AND HAS NO OTHER IMAGE
yad rupam sa sunyata ya sunyata sa rupam
(this form that emptiness this emptiness that form)
AS IS EMPTINESS  of the IMAGE SO IS IMAGE's emptiness.
evam eva vedana samjna samskara vijnanam
(like this feeling thought choice consiousness)
AND PRAYERS, SAMSKARA AND KNOWLEDGE
iha sariputra sarva dharma sunyata
(oh Sariputra all dharmas emptiness)
ALSO SHOW THE EMPTINESS OF ALL DHARMAS
laksana anutpanna anruddha avmala anuna aparpurna
(mark not born not pure not increase not decrease ?)
WHICH IS NOT BORN, NOT PURE NOT SOILED, NOT COMPLETE, NOT INCOMPLETE

ta (...) sariputra sunyatayam
(therefore Sariputra in the middle of emptiness)
THUS IN THIS EMPTINESS THERE IS
na rupam na vedana na samjna na samskara na vijnana
(no form no feeling no thought no choice no consciousness)
NO FORM, NO FEELING, NO .......
na caksuh srotam na ghrana jihva kaya manah
(no eye ear no nose tongue body mind)

na rupa sabda gandha rasa spistavya dharmah
(no form sound smell taste touch dharmas)

na caksur dhatur ya van na mano vijnanam dhatur
(no eye-area up to no mind-consciousness area)

na vidya na vidya na vidya ksayo na(*) vidya ksayo
(no clarity no clarity no clarity exhaustion no clarity exhaustion)

ya van jaramaranam na jaramarana ksayo
(up to old age no old age exhaustion)

na duhkha samudaya nirdoha margajna
(no suffering end of suffering path)

na jnanam na prapti na bhismaya tasmai na prapti
(no knowledge no ownership no witnessing no thing to own)

tvad bodhisattva prajnaparamita asritya
(therefore bodhisattva perfect wisdom dwells)

viha ratya citta varano vidya ksayo na vidya ksayo
(in dwell thought no obstacle clarity exhaustion not clairty exhaustion)

ya van jaramaranam na jaramarana ksayo
(up to old age no old age exhaustion)

na duhkha samudaya nirodha margajna

WITH THIS PERFECT WISDOM

(no existence fear fright inverse reverse ? separate)

ni stha nirvana tya dha vyava sthitah
(perfectly stands nirvana three worlds thing experiences)
STAY IN PERMANENT NIRVANA IN THREE WORLDS.
