A Loving Atma Namaste!
Chanting "The Mantra which Calms All Suffering" ...
Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha!
There are no mantras in the 600 volumes of the Prajna Paramita Sutras - which includes The Heart Sutra at the End of which there is a Mantra.
So, to have this mantra at the end is rather unusual.
It is called "The Mantra which Calms All Suffering" ... "Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha!"
What does it mean?
It has been translated in many ways ...
One of the beautiful ways is a commentary extracted from "The Heart of Understanding": by Thich Nhat Hanh.
"Through mindfulness we experience "Interbeing" which means everything is in everything else.
Therefore, one should know that Perfect Understanding is a great mantra, is the highest mantra, is the unequaled mantra, the destroyer of all suffering, the incorruptible truth."
Other interpretations include but are not limited to:
- Gone ... Gone Beyond
Which has gone altogether beyond
Freed from Suffering ... or What an Awakening!
- Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone altogether beyond. Oh what an awakening! All hail!
- Gone, gone, gone beyond altogether beyond, Awakening, fulfilled!
- Gone, gone, gone to the Other Shore, attained the Other Shore having never left.
- Gone, gone, totally gone, totally completely gone, enlightened, so be it.
- "Oh, you have done! You have done! You have completely crossed the margin.
This is Enlightenment! Congratulations!"
- "Homage to the Awakened Mind which has crossed over to the other shore - which has gone altogether beyond freed from suffering"
Loving Blessings be with All!
