  • Buddhism, and the Heart Sutra is devoted to the subject of prajna. In Sanskrit, pra means before or prior to, and jna means knowledge or knowing. So prajna refers to a kind of intuition or intuitive ability. In Buddhism, real wisdom is based on this intuitive ability, and has nothing to do with intellectual knowledge. Zen Buddhists believe that.

From this period until now, 44 years have passed and this Sutra is still an invaluable torch lighting my path. Today I have the opportunity to present it to you.
