Synopsis
The most famous texts in Mahayana Buddhism are the Heart Sutra and the Diamond-Cutter Sutra. They are part of the Perfection of Wisdom (Prajna-Paramita) tradition. Presented here are plain English translations of those two sutras and more. 
        
  • Verses on the Collection of the Highest Qualities (the earliest Prajna-Paramita text), 
  • An abridgement of the entire Perfection of Wisdom in 8,000 Lines (the central Prajna-Paramita text),
  • Selections from the Large Sutra on the Perfection of Wisdom,
  • The Perfection of Wisdom in 700 Lines
  • The Heart Sutra
  • The Diamond-Cutter Sutra
                                         
In addition to notes to each of these translations, there are separate essays on the Perfection of Wisdom philosophy:
        
  • The Philosophy of the Perfection of Wisdom 
  • Logic and Paradox: An Excursion into Nonsense?
  • The Heart Sutra: "Form is Emptiness"
