Description du produit


The Heart Sutra, a mere 35 lines, is one of Buddhism's best-known teachings, "Buddhism in a nutshell," according to Red Pine, an award-winning translator of Chinese poetry and religious writings. But when he was asked to prepare a fresh translation, he found himself reconsidering its origins, reexamining every word, and reassessing every nuance. The result is a meticulous line-by-line interpretation that will radically deepen readers' understanding of not only the sutra but also Buddhism's underlying structure, Abhidharma, or the Matrix of Reality. Red Pine begins by noting that while no one knows where the Heart Sutra came from or who composed it, he has come to believe that its roots are in Northern India, and that "the noble Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva" named in the first line is none other than an incarnation of Maya, the Buddha's mother. Red Pine then proceeds to explicate the Heart Sutra in its concentrated entirety, including its most cited pronouncement, "form is emptiness, emptiness is form," a feat that will engage and enlighten every serious student of the Dharma.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Heart Sutra is Buddhism in a nutshell. It has had the most profound and wide-reaching influence of any text in Buddhism. This short text covers more of the Buddha’s teachings than any other scripture, and it does so without being superficial or hurried. Although the original author is unknown, he was clearly someone with a deep realization of the Dharma.

For this new English translation, Red Pine, award-winning translator of Chinese poetry and religious texts, has utilized various Sanskrit and Chinese versions, refining the teachings of dozens of ancient teachers together with his own commentary to offer a profound word-for-word explication. Divided into four parts and broken into thirty-five lines to make it easier to study or chant, and containing a glossary of names, terms, and texts, The Heart Sutra is a wise book of deep teaching destined to become the standard edition of this timeless statement of Mahayana truth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bowing in gratitude for a gem of a book 9 décembre 2016
Par JAD - Publié sur

Writing with the head of a scholar and the heart of a poet, Red Pine creates a rare gem to behold, in your hands, in your heart, for years to come. There is so much material in it, along with so much beauty in the style and language, I find myself going over the same passages again and again just to savor them. Made for slow reading, but then speed is just not the right metric here. Thank you, Bill Porter, for sharing your wisdom with us. Hands bowed in gratitude.

With numerous commentaries written about the Heart Sutra, it is difficult to find something original to say about it. Red Pine's, “The Heart Sutra” is an excellent introductory commentary on the etymology of sanskrit terms used in the sutra.
If I may add some additional personal thoughts on the history as outlined in this book, I would add that the Wheel of Dharma is round and as such, it neither has a beginning point nor an end one. There is no need for a “first spinning of the Wheel of Dharma” or a second or a third. There are many tributaries that flow into the river that flows into the Ocean of Excellence. That which is REALITY is immutable and yet the term immutable is only applicable as contraposition to that which is mutable and therefore, has no real basis in reality. To me the Heart Sutra is not about the supercedence of one teaching over another or a chronological, epistemological history but a digest of a normal progresssional process/path for human kind. The lesson of the Heart Sutra is that which is worth experiencing is beyond the knowledge of language; it can not be “known” from a book but has to be experienced. Lesser Vehicle, Greater Vehicle are just mental diversions and have no real basis. The Suringama Sutra goes further stating that even the Tathagata, Arhat, Samyak-sambodhi and etc., are beyond identity and difference. How much more so is Advaita Vedantins, Theravadins, Sarvastivadins, Yogacaras, and so forth?!
I still enjoyed this book very much. It was an enjoyable read, well thought out and very, very thought provoking. From here I would recommend the commentary by Ch'an Master Han Shan for further reading. I hope you find this review helpful, if not a little informative.
May everyone only see auspiciousness everywhere; let no one have the burden of sorrow or misery.

Given the prominence and role of the Heart Sutra in contemporary Buddhism, it would have been easy to ignore its origins. In Japan, for instance, it is probably the most chanted sutra, and many lay people have it memorized. Red Pine dutifully uses his introduction to review the existing scholarship to locate where the sutra may have been composed and why, even speculating on possible purposes (e.g., a summary of other Buddhist teachings or texts). He provides historical context to other sutras and points out that different translations in Chinese - let alone English - further confuse what a true Heart Sutra may look like. Finally, Red Pine notes that other Buddhists and scholars have been commenting on it for centuries (there are 80 extant Chinese commentaries that predate modern times).

Red Pine does his commentary line by line. In so doing, he gives us an excellent overview of Buddhism, its core concepts, and plenty of nuggets for meditation. For instance, in analyzing line 11 of his translation, he reminds us of the often paradoxical nature of Buddhist teaching. "If ... all dharmas are empty of self-existence, impermanence no longer applies, as they neither come into being nor do they cease to be." That is, if there is no beginning or end, then there can be no impermanence. This is reminiscent of Joshu's dog: just like Buddha nature is not something that can be had, to say it is not there denies the reality. The logical mind freezes. Kensho. Great stuff.

My only fault is the translation itself. I prefer the one used by the Rochester Zen Center. Incomplete though it may be, it is great for chanting.

I have 5 other copies of this sutra and this is my favorite. Pine reads Sanscrit and Chinese, which most other writers cannot. I believe his translation is the best. His commentaries are outstanding. Continued study of this book increases my understanding of this most important sutra. First understanding, then knowledge, and finally wisdom.
