The Heart Sutra (般若心経, Hannya Shingyō) contains only 260 Chinese characters. Although these characters are more saturated with meaning than a single English word, this Sutra is short in any language. And yet, despite its brevity, the Sutra contains everything a person needs to know about Buddhism. It also contains everything we need to know about cosmic reality.
