Heart Sutra Mantra.

Om gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha!! This is from the Heart Sutra mantra, which speaks of transcending thoughts and concepts to reside in the pure essence of being at peace and at one with all. Oneness that is beyond all dualities. In my understanding, to be able to reside in that place of balance between somethingness and nothingness, regardless of circumstances is tasting the enlightenment of Nirvana.

~Peace to all beings~

Hi James

I've yet to see a Sanskrit version of the Heart Sutra which includes "oṃ" in the mantra. You're not the only one who adds it, but it puzzles me why people do.

Thanks for the correction. I've just always heard it said that way so I appreciate your comment. Also, I have yet to get it tattooed with your design as I said I would. When I do please know that I will contact you and pay for your design.
