Synopsis:
New paperback edition. For this new work on the Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, renowned translator Red Pine has utilized Sanskrit and Chinese versions, refining the teachings of the ancient masters together with his own contemporary commentary to offer a profound word-for-word explication.

The short text of the Heart Sutra is Buddhism in a nutshell. Its full title, Prajnaparamita Hridaya Sutra, or the Sutra of the Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom, explains that this sutra contains the essence of the Buddha's teaching, the core of perfect enlightenment.

"A meticulous line-by-line interpretation that will radically deepen readers' understanding of not only the sutra but also Buddhism's underlying structure." Booklist.
