    Heart Sutra (Maka Hannya Haramita Shingyo) spanish translation

    Hi folks, can those of you who speak spanish recommend one known good spanish translation of this sutra to chant?
    In the zendo we recite it in japanese. I do not dare to translate it from the English version we chant here since I'm afraid to miss something.


    Thanks and regards.

    Heart Sutra (Maka Hannya Haramita Shingyo) spanish translation

    I found a translation here:

    A comprehensive resource for zen and buddhism practitioners: information on history, principles, practice, meditation guide, zen and buddhism related media (books, art, video and audio), organizations directory, and links to additional on-line resources. Some content available via XML RSS. HEART SUTRA - Chapter 02. Spanish Version by Oriol Borras


    I speak only a little Spanish. Not fluent

      Thanks Troy. I will add it to the other two I already have, and then compare to see which is best for chanting.

          Gracias Khalil!

          I should have remembered that blog.
          I know (we exchanged some mails) the priest running that blog, Tashi Nyima from the Jonang tibetan lineage.
          Sorry for the English, I didn't want to say all of that in spanish so as not to bother the other folks here.

            Walter,

            No problem. I probably should not have written that in Spanish so my apologies to all. Yes, Tashi Nyima is a great lama and very helpful!

              Oh I know a good Spanish translation. Mine!

              I wanted to have a translation as close as the English one we use here at Treeleaf.

              This is what we'll use in our upcoming Spanish sitting group. I'll let you guys when we'll start.

              Let me know what you think!





              El Sutra de la perfección de la gran sabiduría

              Avolokiteshvara bodhisattva, quien despertó
              al Prajna Paramita, la Perfección de la Gran Sabiduría *
              Percibió el vacío de las Cinco Condiciones
              y se liberó del sufrimiento.

              O Shariputra, la forma equivale al vacío;
              el vacío equivale a la forma;
              la forma es precisamente el vacío, el vacío es precisamente la forma.

              Las sensaciones, percepciones, formaciones y consciencia también son así.

              O Shariputra, todas las cosas son expresiones del vacío,
              Nada nace, ni se destruye, nada se mancha, nada es puro;
              Nada se oculta, nada nace.

              Por eso el vacío no es la forma; no hay sensación, no hay percepción, no hay formación, no hay consciencia.

              No existen ojos, oído, nariz, lengua, cuerpo ni mente.

              No existen los sentidos de la vista, oído, olfato, gusto, tacto, ni objeto mental;

              No hay reino de la vista, no hay reino de la consciencia;

              No existe la ignorancia, no existe el fin a la ignorancia;

              No hay vejez ni muerte;

              No hay cesación de vejez ni muerte;

              No hay sufrimiento, no existe causa o fin para el sufrimiento;

              No hay camino, no hay sabiduría y nada qué ganar.

              Nada qué ganar, por ende los Bodhisattvas viven este Prajna Paramita*

              Sin ningún obstáculo mental-
              Sin obstáculos el miedo se va.

              Más allá del autoengaño, el Nirvana siempre ha estado aquí.

              Todos los Budas pasados y futuros
              Viven este Prajna Paramita*

              Y alcanzan la suprema y completa iluminación.

              Por eso entiende que Prajna Paramita
              es el mantra sagrado el mantra luminoso,
              el mantra supremo, el mantra incomparable
              con el que el sufrimiento se va

              Esto es la verdad
              Por ello entona el mantra de Prajna Paramita
              Entona este mantra y proclama *

              Gate Gate
              Paragate
              Parasamgate
              Bodhi! Svaha!
              Hondō Kyōnin
              奔道 協忍

                    Very nice Kyonin!

                    I look forward to that spanish sitting group!

                    For some reason, I feel more comfortable reciting and chanting in spanish except for the Takkesage or the Hannya Shingyo in japanese.

                    I've translated the meal gatha, for reciting before lunch in a buddhist scout meeting/sitting I'll be coordinating next saturday.
                    In the scouts every religion has its prayers and we buddhists were lacking one for the meals.
                    Argentina is one of the few countries having buddhist scout although we are very few compared to God religions.

                    I think the meal gatha is universal, can be recited by anyone in any religion and it makes sense.

                    Gassho,
                    Walter.

                        If you don't mind, could you share your transaltion of the meal gatha?

                          Sure Khalil.

                          Tomorrow I'll post it.
                          I do not have it at home but in the office.

                          It is very short although

                            Awesome Kyonin! Sounds almost like Latin to me. Maybe someone can come up with a Latin version as well
                            Why is mantra masculine, by the way? Doesn't mantra sagrada etc. sound better?

                              Hi Mike, here is my humble translation of the Meal Gatha.
                              I've actually merged the Meal Gatha of the Treeleeaf Chantbook and the Gokan no ge found in the global sotozen website:
                              http://global.sotozen-net.or.jp/eng/practice/sutra/pdf/03/a10.pdf

                              "Esta comida que vamos a recibir proviene del esfuerzo de numerosos seres.
                              Reflexionamos si nuestras virtudes y praćtica son dignas de esta ofrenda.
                              Consideramos la gula como obstáculo para la libertad de la mente.
                              Agradecemos recibir la comida como nutrición y medicina para nuestra práctica.
                              Ofrecemos sus virtudes y sabores al Buda el Dharma y la Sangha como a la vida en todos los reinos de la existencia.
                              Que todos los seres estén suficientemente nutridos."


                              Since we (Scouts de Argentina) are an educational movement for kids and young people, I thought it would be worthy to include an invitation to reflect on the efforts (and sacrifices depending on the diet) that took place for bringing us that meal.
                              Except for the line of the offeirng to the three jewels, it could be universal, any religion could say it with no "side-effects".
                              I kept that line, however, because this is supposed to be a prayer for buddhists. I think it could be used by any buddhist tradition.

                              All your comments, corrections and suggestions will be appreciated.

                              Gassho,
