The Other Shore: A New Translation
of the Heart Sutra with Commentaries
by Thich Nhat Hanh
★★★★ 1/2

This new translation of the Buddha's most important, most studied teaching offers a radical new interpretation.

In September, 2014 Thich Nhat Hanh completed a profound and beautiful new English translation of the Praj├▒aparamita Heart Sutra, one of the most important and well-known sutras in Buddhism.

The Heart Sutra is recited daily in Mahayana temples and practice centers throughout the world. This new translation came about because Thich Nhat Hanh believes that the patriarch who originally compiled the Heart Sutra was not sufficiently skillful with his use of language to capture the intention of the Buddha's teachings—and has resulted in fundamental misunderstandings of the central tenets of Buddhism for almost 2,000 years.
