The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra is one of the oldest and most well-known Mahayana sutras. The teaching of Avalokiteshvara, Bodhisattva of compassion, about the enlightenment experience, has been translated into many languages. This translation is by Djann Hoffman, with major assistance from poet Peter Levitt and Jakush Kwong Roshi. The text is handset in Goudy's Italian Old Style, printed letterpress within a wine-colored border and circling gold buddhas.
