The Heart Sutra- Prajñāpāramitā Hṛdaya-here in a rare, original Sanskrit rendering by classical Indian singer-Vidya Rao. The Heart Sutra was composed in the 1st century CE in India and was later transmitted and translated into Chinese and Tibetan. It is unusual to find a recording sung by a native Sanskrit speaker from India; Vidya Rao’s is perhaps the only such recording available. This chant is part of a collection recorded by Siddhartha’s Intent, an organization dedicated to reviving the wisdom traditions of India. http://www.siddharthasintent.org/

Set to pictures from the places in the Buddha Sakyamuni’s life from the birth place in Lumbini, enlightenment in Bodhgaya and the Bodhi tree, sermons at Vulture’s peak in Rajgir and Sarnath Stupa and death in Kushinagar. There are also views of Nalanda, Sanchi and Ajanta-Ellora.
