What is the Heart Sutra?
The Heart Sutra, or the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, is one of the most well known of Buddhist scriptures. Although short, it is rich in meaning and history as it contains the essential concepts of Buddhist beliefs and philosophies. People who are afflicted by spirit disturbances are sometimes advised to recite the Heart Sutra as it is also very beneficial to the spirits who come looking for help.
