སྨྲ་བསམ་བརྗོད་མེད་ཤེས་རབ་ཕ་རོལ་ཕྱིན། །

མ་སྐྱེས་མི་འགག་ནམ་མཁའི་ངོ་བོ་ཉིད། །
སོ་སོ་རང་རིག་ཡེ་ཤེས་སྤྱོད་ཡུལ་བ། །

དུས་གསུམ་རྒྱལ་བའི་ཡུམ་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ། །

Beyond words, beyond thought, beyond description, prajñāparamitā,
Unborn, unceasing, the very essence of space,
Yet it can be experienced as the pure wisdom of our own awareness,
Homage to the mother of the buddhas of the three times![1]

Rāhulabhadra, Praise to Prajñāparamitā


  1. This verse is usually attributed to the master called Rāhulabhadra, who wrote a Praise of the Prajñāparamitā, and sometimes even to the Buddha’s son Rāhula, but it has also been attributed to Nāgārjuna. Rāhulabhadra is sometimes identified with the mahāsiddha Saraha.
