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. 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.
