Prajñāpāramitāhṛdaya (Heart Sutra)
Anonymous

A famous sutra in Mahāyāna Buddhism; its Sanskrit title means "The Heart of the Perfection of Understanding". The text is very short, and it is generally believed to be Buddhist apocrypha written in China using excerpts of a translation of the Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra. The earliest extant text of the Heart Sūtra is the palm-leaf manuscript found at the Horyuji Temple, and dated to 609 CE. Excerpted from Heart Sutra on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
