The Concise Heart Sutra
Posted on March 11, 2012
Form is emptiness; emptiness is form.
Emptiness is not other than form; form also is not other than emptiness.
Sensation, perception, volition, and consciousness are empty.
All phenomena are merely empty, having no characteristics.
They are not produced and do not cease.
They have no defilement and no separation from defilement.
They have no decrease and no increase.
In suchness there is no form, no sensation,
no perception, no volition, no consciousness.
There is no eye, no ear, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind,
no form, no sound, no smell, no taste,
no tactile sensation, and no phenomenon.
There are no sense organs, no conceptual mind,
no afflicted mind, and no ground consciousness.
There are no causal links of dependent origination
and no exhaustion of causal links of dependent origination.
There is no suffering, origin, cessation, or path;
no exalted wisdom, no attainment, and no non-attainment.
Because there is no striving for attainment,
all Bodhisattvas rely on and abide in the perfection of wisdom;
their minds have no obstructions and no fear.
Passing utterly beyond perversity,
the great beings on the path to perfection
attain the final state beyond sorrow.
All the Buddhas who perfectly reside in the three times,
relying upon the perfection of wisdom,
become manifest and complete Buddhas
in the state of unsurpassed, perfect, and complete enlightenment.
The essence of the perfection of wisdom,
the formula of great knowledge, the unsurpassed expression,
the equal-to-the-unequalled sound,
the mantra that thoroughly pacifies all suffering,
is effective and true.
I declare the mantra of the perfection of wisdom.
It is thus: om Gone, gone, perfectly gone, perfectly gone beyond,
I surrender to enlightenment!
