Heart Sutra - word for word - Sanskrit / Chinese / English

Heart Sutra - word for word - Sanskrit / Chinese / English

Hrdaya Prajnaparamita Skt-Chn-Eng Word by Word (Heart Sutra)
(Up-dated 2011-12-24)

Having a lot of people on internet Buddhist Forums look for this sort of thing, I thought I'd make a file with all the essentials.  The file has the basic Heart Sutra (the standard east asian one from Xuanzang, not the later and longer version), along with the Sanskrit version, broken down word for word, with the Chinese and Sanskrit matched up.  Each "word" has a basic English translation.  And then each section has a complete translation in English, too.

Excellent for those people who like to study the Chinese or Sanskrit versions of the sutras they commonly recite.

Happy reading!  :)
