The Heart Sutra, also know as the Prajna Paramita Sutra or the Perfection of Wisdom, is the essence of the Buddha's teaching on "emptiness," or the manner in which things truly exist. This sutra is chanted daily in monasteries and practice centers throughout the world.

This finely engraved sterling silver möbius bangle bracelet is 1/4" at the widest point, and 8 1/2" around. Made in the USA.

Please note: this bracelet is a bangle with no opening and must slide over your hand onto your wrist. We recommend that you cut a piece of paper 8" to measure your hand and wrist prior to ordering.

  • The Heart Sutra mantra protects the mind from depending on objects so it can directly perceive the non-dual nature of self and phenomenon that is beyond thought and conceptual understanding. This mantra is also an indirect teaching on the Stages of the Path.The Heart Sutra mantra is translated thus: "Gone, gone; Gone beyond; Well-gone beyond; Complete Awakening". An English translation of the Heart Sutra accompanies the bracelet.

    The Heart Sutra
    English Translation

    The Maha Prajna Paramita Hrdaya Sutra

    Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva
    when practicing deeply the Prajna Paramita
    perceives that all five skandhas are empty
    and is saved from all suffering and distress.

    Shariputra,
    form does not differ from emptiness,
    emptiness does not differ from form.
    That which is form is emptiness,
    that which is emptiness form.

    The same is true of feelings,
    perceptions, impulses, consciousness.

    Shariputra,
    all dharmas are marked with emptiness:
    they do appear or disappear,
    are not tainted or pure,
    do not increase or decrease.

    Therefore, in emptiness no form, no feelings,
    perceptions, impulses, consciousness.

    No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind;
    no color, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch,
    no object of mind;
    no realm of eyes
    and so forth until no realm of mind consciousness.

    No ignorance and also no extinction of it,
    and so forth until no old age and death
    and also no extinction of them.
    No suffering, no origination,
    no stopping, no path, no cognition,
    also no attainment with nothing to attain.

    The Bodhisattva depends on Prajna Paramita
    and the mind is no hindrance;
    without any hindrance no fears exist.
    Far apart from every perverted view one dwells in Nirvana.

    In the three worlds
    all Buddhas depend on Prajna Paramita
    and attain Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi.

    Therefore, know that Prajna Paramita
    is the great transcendent mantra,
    is the great bright mantra,
    is the utmost mantra,
    is the supreme mantra,
    which is able to relieve all suffering
    and is true, not false.
    So proclaim the Prajna Paramita mantra,
    proclaim the mantra which says:

    gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, Bodhi svaha
    gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, Bodhi svaha
    gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, Bodhi svaha.
