Prajnaparamita Bodhisattva

All I do is refrain from grasping after what is not real.
The Buddha, Prajnaparamita

The word Prajñāpāramitā combines the Sanskrit words prajñā (wisdom) with pāramitā (perfection)

The mind does not reside in the mind — its nature is pure light.
Perfect Wisdom, Prajnaparamita

I see in such a way that I see no ordinary people, no learners, and no adepts.
Manjushri, Prajnaparamita 700 lines

The Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) texts, are said to be closest Buddhists got to putting truth (impossible task) into words.

  1. Yes indeed……..OM

  2. Best Buddhist site on line. I look forward to it as the teachings are so comforting. Thanks.

  3. I love the images of Budhhas, Boddhisattvas, Dakinis, Gods and Goddesses that accompany your posts. Nowadays they also seem to come in from all directions in the net, and just looking seems to be an act of grace, reminder of the subtle act of being arising from all the noise and frenzy. All at the tap of a finger. We are in amazing times.
