The Heart of Perfect Wisdom Sutra


( Prajna Paramita Hridaya Sutra )

Translated by TRUC HUY

The Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, from the deep course of Prajna wisdom, saw clearly that all five skandhas were empty, thus sundered all bonds of suffering.

Sariputra, know then: form does not differ from emptiness, nor does emptiness differ from form. Form is no other than emptiness, emptiness no other than form. The same is true of feelings, perceptions, impulses and consciousness.

Sariputra, all dharmas are marked with emptiness. None are born or die, nor are they defiled or immaculate, nor do they wax or wane. Therefore, where there is emptiness, there is no form, no feeling, no perception, no impulse, nor is there consciousness. No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, or mind. No color, sound, smell, taste, touch, or object of mind. There is no domain of sight, nor even domain of mind consciousness. There is no ignorance nor is there ceasing of ignorance. There is no withering, no death, nor is there ceasing of withering and death. There is no suffering, or cause of suffering, or cease in suffering, or path to lead from suffering. There is no cognition, nor even attainment.

So know that the Bodhisattva, indifferent to any kind of attainment whatsoever but dwelling in Prajna wisdom, is freed of any thought covering, get rid of the fear bred by it, has overcome what can upset and in the end reaches utmost Nirvana. All Buddhas of past and present, and Buddhas of future time, through faith in Prajna wisdom, come to full and perfect Enlightenment.

Therefore, one should know the Prajna paramita as the mantra of great knowledge, the miraculous, the utmost, the unequalled mantra, whose words relieve all suffering. This is highest wisdom, true beyond all doubt.

Know then and proclaim the Prajna paramita mantra. It spells like this:

      Gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha! 
      ( Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone altogether beyond, Bodhi, rejoice! )

Lorsque le Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara accomplit profondément la grande Vertu de Sagesse, il considéra les cinq agrégats comme vides et traversa ainsi toutes les souffrances et afflictions.

Sariputra, les formes ne sont pas différentes du vide, le vide n'est pas différent des formes. Les formes ne sont rien d'autre que le vide, le vide n'est rien d'autre que les formes. Il en est de même des sensations, des perceptions, des formations mentales et de la conscience.

Sariputra, tous ces dharma ont l'aspect du vide. Ils ne naissent ni ne disparaissent. Ils ne sont ni souillés ni purs. Ils ne croissent ni ne décroissent. C'est pourquoi, dans le vide, il n'y a pas de forme, de sensation, de perception, de formation mentale, ni de conscience. Il n'y a pas d'oeil, d'oreille, de nez, de langue, de corps, ni de mental. Il n'y a pas de couleur, de son, d'odeur, de saveur, de toucher, ni d'objet de pensée. Il n'y a pas de domaine du visuel ni même de domaine de la connaissance mentale. Il n'y a pas d'ignorance et pas plus de cessation de l'ignorance. Il n'y a pas de vieillesse ni de mort, et pas plus de cessation de vieillesse ni de mort. Il n'y a pas de souffrance, d'origine de la souffrance, de cessation de la souffrance, ni de chemin qui mène à la cessation de souffrance. Il n'y a pas de connaissance ni même d'obtention.

Comme il n'y a rien à obtenir, c'est pourquoi les Bodhisattva s'appuient sur la Vertu de Sagesse. Leur esprit ne connaît pas d'entrave, ainsi ils n'ont pas de peur. En se libérant des erreurs et des égarements, ils atteignent enfin l'ultime Nirvana. Tous les Bouddhas du passé, du présent et du futur, en s'appuyant sur la Vertu de Sagesse, ont obtenu le suprême et parfait Éveil.

Aussi professe-t-on la grande Vertu de Sagesse, par un mantra miraculeux, un mantra de grande connaissance, un mantra insurpassable, un mantra sans égal, qui supprime toute souffrance, en vérité et sans fausseté.

Voilà donc le mantra qui proclame la grande Vertu de Sagesse. Ce mantra dit:

      Gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha! 
      ( Allez, allez, allez au-delà, allez complètement au-delà, sur la rive du Satori! )

The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, The Buddhist community is extremely upset by the inappropriate and disrespectful use of the image of Buddha, in a display at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) entitled the 'Eternity-Buddha in Nirvana, the Dying Gaul, Farnese Hercules, Night, Day, Sartyr and Bacchante, Funerary Genius, Achilles, Persian Soldier Fighting, Dancing Faun, Crouching Aphrodite, Narcisse Couché, Othryades the Spartan Dying, the Fall of Icarus, A River, Milo of Croton'. It can also be seen at: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/explore/collection/work/131149/ Although this display has been in place for some months, we have only just been made aware of its' existence. We are not usually outspoken, but this display desecrates the image of Buddha by placing images of these mythical images on him and in doing so, showing no apparent regard or respect for Him.

Dhamma is a teaching. Pada is a verse. Dhammapada is a basic scripture in Buddhism, has 423 verses in 26 chapters. Each verse has a meaning that shows a noble way of living.

Thus have I heard, at one time the Buddha was staying at Isipatana, near Varanasi. At that time, the Blessed One expounded the supreme knowledge he had realised to the group of five ascetics. "There are two extremes that one who has gone forth from worldly life should not practise. Which two? 1) That which is devoted to sensual pleasure with reference to sense objects, which is lowly, common, vulgar, unworthy and unprofitable; and 2) That which is devoted to self-affliction, which is painful, unworthy and unprofitable. Avoiding both of these extremes, the Middle Path realised by the Tathagata produces vision and knowledge, and leads to tranquility, to direct insight, to the extinction of defilements, to enlightenment, to Nibbana."

The Pali Canon is a vast body of literature: in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most (but not all) of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available on this website, this collection can be a good place to start.

The Five Mindfulness Trainings are one of the most concrete ways to practice mindfulness. They are nonsectarian, and their nature is universal. They are true practices of compassion and understanding. All spiritual traditions have their equivalent to the Five Mindfulness Trainings. The first training is to protect life, to decrease violence in onc-self, in the family and in society. The second training is to practice social justice, generosity, not stealing and not exploiting other living beings. The third is the practice of responsible sexual behavior in order to protect individuals, couples, families and children. The fourth is the practice of deep listening and loving speech to restore communication and reconcile. The fifth is about mindful consumption, to help us not bring toxins and poisons into our body or mind.
