When the holy Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara had truly grasped
    the transcendent wisdom, he realized that visible form is
    only illusion. The same applies to its perception, to its
    names and categories, to discriminative intellect and finally
    even to our consciousness. They are all illusion. With this
    realization he was beyond all sorrow and bitterness.Disciple
    Sariputra! The material is not different from the immaterial.
    The immaterial and the material are in fact one and the same
    thing. The same applies to perception, concepts, discriminative
    thinking and consciousness. They are neither existing nor not

    Sariputra! All things therefore they are in themselves not good
    and not bad, they are not increasing and not decreasing.
    Therefore one may say there are no such things as form,
    perception, concepts, thinking process, and consciousness.
    Our senses such as eye, ear, nose, tongue, body and mind are
    misleading us to illusion; thus one may also say there is no
    reality in visible form, sound, smell, taste, touch and mind
    knowledge. There are also no such things as the realms of sense
    from sight up to mind, and no such things as the links of existence
    from ignorance and its end to old age and death and their end.
    Also the Four Noble Truths are nonexistent, just as there is no
    such thing as wisdom and also no gain.

    Because the holy Bodhisattva who relies on transcendent wisdom
    knows that there is no gain, he has no worries and also no fear.
    Beyond all illusion he has reached the space of highest Nirvana.
    All Buddhas of the past present and future, found highest perfect
    knowledge because they relied on transcendental wisdom.

    Therefore we ought to know that the great verse of the transcendent
    wisdom is unsurpassed in its splendor and that it appeases truly
