The Venerable Bodhisattva Kwan Seom,
performing his meditation in the deep Prajna-Paramita,
There are five thieves, and these by their nature are empty.
Sarija, form is emptiness, and emptiness is form.
Emptiness is not different from form, and form is not different from emptiness.
What is form is emptiness, what is emptiness is form.
The same is true of perception, name, conception and knowledge.
Sarija, all things have the character of emptiness.
They have no beginning and no end.
They are not pure, neither are they impure.
They do not decrease, neither do they increase.
Therefore Sarija, in emptiness, there is no form, no perception, no name, no concepts, no knowledge.
No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body or mind.
No form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or attachment.
No world of sight... no world o conciousness.
No ignorance and no end to ingnorance...
No old age and death, and no end to old age and death.
No suffering, accumulation, destruction, Way.
No wisdom and no gain.
No gain and thus the Bodhisattva lives by Prajna-Paramita,
With no hindrance in the mind,
No hindrance, therefore, no fear.
Far beyond mistaken fantasy, at last there is Nirvana.
All past, present and future Buddhas live by Prajna-Paramita.
And therefore receive the highest, most perfect enlightenment.
Therefore know, the Prajna-Paramita is the Great Mantra,
The Vivid mantra, the Highest Mantra, the Incomparable Mantra.
It completely clears all pain - this is true, not false.
So set forth the Prajna-Paramita Mantra,
Set forth this Mantra and say:
