Unlike scholarly translations, this 'contemplative expansion' of forty passages from the Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra in 8.000 Lines - the basic scripture of all Schools of Mahāyāna Buddhism - yields a text of devotional beauty that is poetic and uplifting. Through dramatic conversations between the Buddha and his disciples Shariputra, Subhuti, and Ananda, the Bodhisattva Path to Enlightenment is revealed. This spiritually inspiring book features a Foreword by renowned American Buddhist scholar Dr. Robert A.F. Thurman on the historical background of the radical Mahāyāna teachings on the nature of Reality,

From the Heart Sutra (p. 235 & p. 236):

" O Shariputra, the fully awakened Buddhas of the beginningless past, the open future and the limitless dimensions of the present can manifest the total awakeness of Buddha nature only by birthless birth from Mother Prajñāpāramitā, womb of Perfect Wisdom. O Shariputra, listen carefully to these syllabic sounds, which contain the entire Perfection of Wisdom, as a vast tree is miraculously contained within a small seed. This is the mantra, which awakens every conscious stream into pure presence. This is the mantra of all mantras, the mantra which transmits the principles of incomparability and inconceivability, the mantra which instantly dissipates the apparent darkness of egocentric misery, the mantra which invokes only truth and does not acknowledge the separate self-existence of any falsehood:

(oṃ tadyathā) gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā |

Pure presence is transcending, ever transcending, transcending transcendence, transcending even the transcendence of transcendence. It is toal awakeness. It is suchness. "
