Chinese Texts

Taishō 251

One of the problems we have studying this text is that there are differences in the Chinese text. When the CBETA version was created they added a lot of extraneous punctuation to the text, often in the wrong place. Here is the Xīnjīng as it appears in the printed Taishō Shinshū Daizōkyō (with lines and without). The text occurs in Vol.8 of Taishō

般若波羅蜜多心經

唐三藏法師玄>奘譯

觀自在菩薩。行深般若波羅蜜多時。照見五 蘊皆空。度一切苦厄。

舍利子。色不異空。空不異色。色即是空。空即是色。受想行識亦復如是。
舍利子。是諸法空相。不生不滅。不垢不淨不增不減。
是故空中。無色。無受想行識。無眼耳鼻舌身意。無色聲香味觸法。無眼界。乃至無意識界。無無明。亦無無明盡。乃至無老死。亦無老死盡。無苦集滅道。無智亦無得。以無所得故。
菩提薩埵。依般若波羅蜜多故。心無罣礙。無罣礙故。無有恐怖。遠離顛倒夢想。究竟涅槃。
三世諸佛。依般若波羅蜜多故。得阿耨多羅三藐三菩提。
故知般若波羅蜜多。是大神咒。是大明咒是無上咒。是無等等咒。能除一切苦。真實不虛故。說般若波羅蜜多咒即說咒曰
揭帝揭帝 般羅揭帝 般羅僧揭帝 菩提僧莎訶
般若波羅蜜多心經

 

Note that the text as popularly chanted uses the alternate ending 薩婆訶 sàpó hē which more accurately reflects the sounds of Sanskrit svāhā. In the Dhāraṇīsamuccaya (T901)—the probable source of the dhāraṇī—svāhā is represented by 莎訶 Shā hē, and  僧莎訶 sēng shāhē is probably a mistake for this with an inadvertent  repetition of 僧.
