Noble [Teaching]. Prajna paramita "Kaushika"

    Praise be to all the Enlightened ones and Bodhisattvas!
    So I heard once.
    The Blessed One was in Rajagriha for the feast of Gridhrakuta, along with a large benevolent Assembly of Bhikshus and many hundreds of thousands of Bodhisattvas who appeared as young princes.
    Then the Blessed one said to Shakra, the Lord of the gods:
    Kaushika! This is the essence of the Perfection of Wisdom here. Perfection of Wisdom [not seen] as duality or nonduality; it is not signs, is no evidence; it is not grasping or rejection; is not increasing or decreasing; is not seagrassnet or non-contaminated;; is not clean or not clean; not a rejection or non-rejection; not a presence and an absence; it is not connection not connection; it is not binding and non-binding; it is not a condition and no-condition; it does not appear as a Dharma-particle and does not appear as a non-Dharma-particle; it is not reality-Suchness and is not non-Suchness. Is not an absolute completion and is not the inverse of it.
    Kaushika! Such is the essence of the Perfection of Wisdom, that it is like this! Since all dharmo-particles are equal, the essence of the Perfection of Wisdom is equality. Since all Dharma is particles, the Perfection of Wisdom is profound. Since all Dharma phenomena are particles, the Perfection of Wisdom is separateness. Since all Dharma particles are unshakeable, the Perfection of Wisdom is unshakeable. Since all Dharma is particles without a proud mind, the Perfection of Wisdom is without a proud mind. Since all Dharma is particles without fear, the Perfection of Wisdom is without fear. Since all Dharma is particles without heat, the Perfection of Wisdom is the absence of heat. Since all Dharma is part of one taste, the Perfection of Wisdom is one taste. Since all Dharma is particles without birth, the Perfection of Wisdom is the absence of birth. Since all Dharma is particles without restraint, the Perfection of Wisdom is the absence of restraint. Since all Dharma particles are like heavenly space, the Perfection of Wisdom is like heavenly space. Since form has no limits, the Perfection of Wisdom has no limits. Similarly, since there are no boundaries of sensations, thoughts, Samskaras and consciousness, the Perfection of Wisdom has no boundaries.
    Since there is no limit to the earth element, the Perfection of Wisdom has no limits. Similarly, since there are no boundaries between the elements of water, fire, wind, space, and consciousness, the Perfection of Wisdom has no boundaries. Since there are no boundaries of mount Sumeru, the Perfection of Wisdom has no boundaries. Since there are no boundaries of the ocean, the Perfection of Wisdom has no boundaries. Since vajra is equal to [itself], the Perfection of Wisdom is equal to [itself]. Since all Dharma particles are inseparable, the Perfection of Wisdom is inseparability. Since the essence of all Dharma particles is invisible, the essence of the Perfection of Wisdom is invisible. Since all Dharma particles are equal in the absence of elimination, the Perfection of Wisdom is equal in the absence of elimination. Since all dharmo-chats do not work, the Perfection of Wisdom does not work. Since all Dharma particles are not covered by thought, the Perfection of Wisdom is not covered by thought.
    In this way, Perfection of giving, Perfection of discipline, the Perfection of patience, Perfection of perseverance, Perfection of meditative immersion, the Perfection of wisdom, Perfection of methods, the Perfection of prayer-good wishes, Perfection of strength, Perfection of primordial wisdom have no boundaries because of the complete purity of the three cycles. Therefore, the Perfection of Wisdom has no limits.
    This "Perfection of Wisdom" is the eighteen kinds of emptiness. This emptiness inside, emptiness outside, the emptiness of the external and the internal, the emptiness of emptiness, emptiness of the great [or great void], the emptiness of ultimate reality, the emptiness of the composite, nothing non-composite, nothing surpassed the extremes, the void of the lack of beginning and end, the emptiness of the absence of a drop, the emptiness of self-nature, emptiness all Dharma particles, the emptiness of characteristics, the emptiness of the invisible, the void intangible, the void essence, void essence, the absence of emptiness.


    In short, this emptiness is called the " Perfection of Wisdom."
    Stars, flaws [of vision], lamps,
    magic illusion, dew drops, bubbles on the water,
    sleep, lightning, clouds
    Similarly, look at all the components.

    namo bhagavatyai ārya prajñā pāramitā yai
    oṁ dhīḥ hriḥ śrī śruti smṛiti mati gati vijaye svāhā

    When there is no disappearance and birth,
    There is neither eternity nor nihilism.
    There are no distinct objects, nor a single object.
    As the absence of arrival and movement
    The Teacher [explained] the interdependent origin,
    which calms the building [of the mind] with peace.
    I give praise to this Supreme speech of this [teacher],
    who is the perfect Enlightened one!

    The Blessed one said so, and the noble Sariputra, the Lord of the gods Shakra, Bhikshus, Bodhisattvas, along with the gods, Asuras, humans, and Gandharvas of the universe, rejoiced. They gave praise to the Blessed ones.
    Thus ends the noble [Teaching] Perfection of Wisdom "Kaushika".
     Translated by Lama Karma Paljor (Filippov O. E.).
