The Freeness-of-Vision Bodhisattva enlightens all and saw through the five skandhas, which were empty, while living in complete transcendental wisdom, and, so, was beyond suffering.
Substance is not different from emptiness; emptiness is not different from substance. And substance is the same as emptiness; emptiness is the same as substance. Feeling, thinking, willing, awareness are also like this: empty.
All are empty, non-beginning, non-ending, non-impurity, non-purity, non-increasing, non-decreasing. So, in emptiness, there is no substance, feeling, thinking, willing, or awareness.
There are no eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body or awareness. There is no substance, sound, smell, taste, sense of touch or thought.
There is no realm of the senses, nor even a realm of awareness. There is no unawareness nor cessation of unawareness.
There is no senility or death, no cessation of senility or death.
There is no suffering, no cause of suffering, no cessation of suffering, no cessation-of-suffering path.
There is no wisdom and no achievement. Because there is no achievement, Bodhisattva is not mind-clouded; Mind unclouded, is liberated from existence and fear; free of confusion, attains complete, high Nirvana.
All Buddhas, past, present and future, transcend perfect wisdom and are supremely, completely and perfectly enlightened.
So Prajñāpāramītā is the great holy verse, the wisdom of enlightenment, unequaled and incomparable.
It eliminates suffering.
This is true and not false.
So, we speak aloud and recite the Prajñāpāramītā. Gate Gate: Gone, gone, gone beyond. Pāra-gate: All things to the other shore. Bodhi Svaha: Enlightening wisdom. All perfect.
