(Panruo Boluomiduo Xin Jing 般若波羅蜜多心經; Prajñāparāmitā-Hridaya-Sūtra),
translated into Chinese by Xuanzang 玄奘

(Taishō T0251)

觀自在菩薩。行深般若波羅蜜多時。照見五蘊皆空。度一切苦厄。舍利子,色不異空。空不異色。色即是空。空即是色。受、想、行、識,亦復如是。舍利子,是諸 法空相。不生,不滅。不垢,不淨,不增,不減。是故空中。無色。無受、想、行、識。無眼、耳、鼻、舌、身、意。無色、聲、香、味、觸、法。無眼界。乃至無 意識界。無無明。亦無無明盡。乃至無老死。亦無老死盡。無苦、集、滅、道。無智,亦無得。以無所得故。菩提薩埵。依般若波羅蜜多故。心無罣礙。無罣礙故。 無有恐怖。遠離顛倒夢想。究竟涅槃。三世諸佛。依般若波羅蜜多故。得阿耨多羅三藐三菩提。故知般若波羅蜜多。是大神咒。是大明咒是無上咒。是無等等咒。能 除一切苦。真實不虛故。說般若波羅蜜多咒即說咒曰:揭帝,揭帝,般羅揭帝,般羅僧揭帝,菩提僧莎訶。

When Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara was practicing the profound Perfection of the Wisdom (prajñā parāmitā), he illuminated the Five Appearances (skandha) and saw that they are all empty (shunya), and he crossed beyond all suffering and difficulty.
Shāriputra, form does not differ from emptiness; emptiness does not differ from form. Form itself is emptiness; emptiness itself is form. So too are feeling, cognition, formation, and consciousness.
Shāriputra, all teachings (dharma) are empty of characteristics. They are not produced, not destroyed, not defiled, not pure; and they neither increase nor diminish. Therefore, in emptiness there is no form, feeling, cognition, formation, or consciousness; no eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, or mind; no sights, sounds, smells, tastes, objects of touch, or dharmas; no field of the eyes up to and including no field of mind consciousness; and no ignorance or ending of ignorance, up to and including no old age and death or ending of old age and death. There is no suffering, no accumulating, no extinction, and no Way, and no understanding and no attaining.
Because nothing is attained, the Bodhisattva through reliance on prajñā parāmitā is unimpeded in his mind. Because there is no impediment, he is not afraid, and he leaves distorted dream-thinking far behind. Ultimately Nirvana! All Buddhas of the three periods of time attain anuttarā-samyak-sambodhi through reliance on prajñā parāmitā. Therefore know that prajñā parāmitā is a Great Spiritual Mantra, a Great Bright Mantra, a Supreme Mantra, an Unequalled Mantra. It can remove all suffering; it is genuine and not false. That is why the Mantra of Prajna Paramita was spoken. Recite it like this: Gaté Gaté Paragaté Parasamgaté. Bodhi Svaha!
