Musical Heart Sutra

The Heart Sutra is one of the most important teachings in Japanese Buddhism.

It is chanted several times a day in a rhythmical monotone.

Understanding the essence of the Heart Sutra leads to great wisdom.

The subject of this video is great mantra which is chanted at the end of the Heart Sutra.

Gate gate paragate parasamgate
Bodhi swaha

which means

Gone, gone, gone beyond, completely gone beyond
Praise to awakening

The images are lovely and the tune is addicting.

The essence of the Heart Sutra is the contemplation of emptiness.

Emptiness is the insight that nothing exists by itself alone.

See this article on Meditation Practices for more information on emptiness.
