openedlotus I chanted with this track daily on WeChat for many months until it disappeared...as so many things do. The version without any accents is very beautiful. You might wish to just publish it naked, so to speak. Yet, I am grateful to find it here. It would be very good to publish the “lyrics” in English, Tibetan, and Sanskrit translation. Through Rinpoché, you can mobilize that. Ask him to provide his preferred translations. I have my own. But, it would be nice to see what Rinpoché says. Favorite track: Heart Sutra (Sanskrit) Shri Mangala Tiwari.

I ask people to donate to the various charities mentioned above,
to proliferate “additional donations”, rather than asking for confirmation of previous donations made.
Many thousands of hours and a vast amount of money has been invested
in the production of my music, for which I ask nothing more than for people to make specific donations to the selected charities.

Having followed one of the above links and made a donation please send a copy of the receipt to me by email at : garyazukx@gmail.com to receive an MP3.

If you are a Monastic or unable to donate, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your generosity and encouragement. I pray that with your continued support and prevailing conditions, I will be afforded the privilege of making Dharma music for many years to come.  🙏🏻

My Very Best Wishes To You All

I can't take much credit for this,
the original recording is by Shri Mangala Tiwari
I loved it so much I embellished it a little. Enjoy 🙏🏻


The Heart of the Transcendent Perfection of Wisdom

In the language of India: bhagavatī prajñāpāramitā hṛdaya
In the language of Tibet: bcom ldan 'das ma shes rab kyi pha rol tu phyin pa'i snying po
In the English language: The Blessed Mother, the Heart of the Transcendent Perfection of Wisdom.
In a single segment.
Homage to the Bhagavatī Prajñāpāramitā!
Thus have I heard. At one time the Blessed One was dwelling in Rājgṛha at Vulture Peak mountain, together with a great community of monks and a great community of bodhisattvas.
At that time, the Blessed One entered an absorption on categories of phenomena called ‘perception of the profound’. At the same time, noble Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva and great being, beheld the practice of the the profound perfection of wisdom, and saw that the five aggregates are empty of nature. Then, through the Buddha's power, venerable Śāriputra said to noble Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva and great being: “How should a child of noble family who wishes to practise the profound perfection of wisdom train?”
This is what he said, and the noble Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva and great being, replied to venerable Śāriputra as follows: “O Śāriputra, a son of noble family or daughter of noble family who wishes to practise the profound perfection of wisdom should regard things in this way: they should see the five aggregates to be empty of nature. Form is empty; emptiness is form. Emptiness is not other than form; form is not other than emptiness. In the same way, sensation, recognition, conditioning factors, and consciousness are emptiness. Therefore, Śāriputra, all dharmas are emptiness; they are without characteristics; they are unarisen and unceasing; they are not tainted and not untainted; they are not deficient and not complete. Therefore, Śāriputra, in emptiness, there is no form, no sensation, no recognition, no conditioning factors, no consciousness; no eye, no ear, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind; no visible form, no sound, no odour, no taste, no texture and no mental objects; there is no eye element up to no mind element and as far as no mental consciousness element; there is no ignorance, no extinction of ignorance up to no old age and death, no extinction of old age and death. Likewise, there is no suffering, no origin, no cessation and no path, no wisdom, no attainment, and no non-attainment. Therefore, Śāriputra, since bodhisattvas have no attainment, they rely on and abide by the perfection of wisdom. Since their minds are unobscured, they have no fear. They completely transcend error and reach the ultimate nirvāṇa. All the buddhas throughout the three times fully awaken to unsurpassed, genuine and complete enlightenment by means of the perfection of wisdom. Therefore, the mantra of the

perfection of wisdom—the mantra of great insight, the unsurpassed mantra, the mantra that equals the unequalled, the mantra that pacifies all suffering—is not false and should thus be understood as true. The mantra of the perfection of wisdom is proclaimed as follows:
[oṃ] gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhisvāhā.
Śāriputra, a bodhisattva and great being should train in the profound perfection of
wisdom in this way.”
Thereupon, the Blessed One arose from that absorption and commended Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva and great being: “Excellent, excellent indeed, O son of noble family, that is how it is. That is just how it is. One should practise the profound perfection of wisdom just as you have taught and then even the tathāgatas will rejoice.”
When the Blessed One had said this, venerable Śāriputra, and noble Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva and great being, together with the whole assembly and the world of gods, human beings, asuras and gandharvas rejoiced and praised the speech of the Blessed One.
Thus concludes the Mahāyāna Sūtra of the Blessed Mother, the Heart of the Transcendent Perfection of Wisdom.
