"Heart Sutra"

The Heart Sutra is one of the important scriptures in Buddhism, compiling the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. At its core lies the verse of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, proclaiming the emptiness of all phenomena and suggesting the wisdom that liberates people from suffering. Not only Buddhists but also many others seek to learn from these teachings in pursuit of inner peace and enlightenment.
