POST 509 10JULY2021 EXERCISE SANG SONG Crossing The River - Mantra Perfection of Wisdom - Phan Hoang



 POST 509 July 17, 2021   

   SANG SONG , Crossing The River

 We are now in mid-summer and in this Post 509 we continue with the third part of the form The Summer (VO HA):

Crossing The River, this means arriving to the shore of happiness.



SANG SONG , Crossing The River

 This exercise has been inspired by the last paragraph of the Heart Sutra (Prajnaparamita Hrdaya Sutra/Bat Nha Tam Kinh) which is a mantra in Sanskrit, as follows:

Gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate. Bodhi Svaha

For the context of this exercise SANG SONG (Crossing The River) at his teaching sessions in 2010 Master Phan Hoang gave the following meaning to this mantra:

“Ending all sufferings, arriving to the shore of Enlightenment”


However, beyond the context of this exercise in Vietchidao, it is advisable to the reader to refer to various translations from serious authors in order to know more about this mantra under different circumstances.


(CONZE) Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone altogether beyond, O what an awakening, all-hail!  


(DONALD S. LOPEZ, Jr,)  Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone completely beyond, enlightenment !  


(THICH NHAT HANH, 2014) the Insight that Brings Us to the Other Shore 


(LOK SANG HO) Transcend, Transcend, Transcend beyond all, Transcend completely, Awaken! Let this be!



(HARISCHANDRA KAVIRATNA) Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone altogether beyond (to the other shore)! O enlightenment! Be it so!


(DALAI  LAMA) Go, go, go beyond, go totally beyond, be rooted in the ground of enlightenment.

 (Phan Hoang. Post 509, 16 July 2021)
