Heart Sutra

Heart Sutra - coverThe Heart Sutra
- The Womb of Buddhas
— translated by Red Pine

The Heart Sutra  is Buddhism in a nutshell. 
It has had the most profound and wide-reaching influence of any text in Buddhism.

This short text covers more of the Buddha's teachings than any other scripture, and it does so without being superficial or hurried. 

Shakyamuni - life storyAlthough the original author is unknown, he was clearly someone with a deep realization of the Dharma.

For this new English translation, Red Pine - award-winning translator of Chinese poetry and religious texts - has utilized various Sanskrit and Chinese versions, refining the teachings of dozens of ancient teachers together with his own commentary to offer a profound word-for-word explication.

Divided into four parts and broken into thirty-five lines to make it easier to study or chant, and containing a glossary of names, terms, and texts, The Heart Sutra  is a wise book of deep teaching destined to become the standard edition of this timeless statement of Mahayana truth.
