Publisher's Summary

In this modern classic, world-renowned Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh presents a clear, concise translation and commentary of the Heart Sutra - the world's most popular piece of Buddhist scripture.

Comprising only 632 Chinese characters, the Heart Sutra is Buddhism in a nutshell. Despite its brevity, this powerful work covers more of the Buddha's teachings than any other scripture. Its influence is more profound and wide-reaching than any other text in Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh's translation and commentary is regarded as the most simple, clear, concise, and understandable available. He describes the sutra as "a precious gift to us, the gift of fearlessness". Hanh offers subtle and profound teachings on non-duality and the letting go of all preconceived notions, opinions, and attachments - thereby becoming open to all the wonders of our life.
