The Heart Sutra is perhaps the most famous and sublime Buddhist text widely read and acclaimed at the Mahayana countries in the Himalayan regions and East Asian countries. This simple and short sutra of the main corpus of the larger Prajnaparamita Sutras expresses the profound philosophy of the Buddhism based on Sunyata, the emptiness which transcends perfection of insight wisdom. In Buddhism, Sunyata is the ultimate reality of the universe that awakens the mediator to the state of enlightenment or Nirvana. Prajnaparamita is the spiritual enlighted goddess of wisdom which transcend through the Sunyata (emptiness) by meditation in practice of the profound perfection of wisdom, realization of which liberates one from all sufferings and bestows him compassion for others in the world.

The concluding chapter of the Heart Sutra is the special supplement titled "Buddhism and World Today" written by Bhaktananda Bajracharya. This chapter focuses on the applications and practice of the "Buddhist Enlightenment" teachings based on compassion and wisdom of the Mahayana Buddhism on addressing modern issues relating to the current social, economical and political conflicts, violence and sufferings in the world including the current scenario of Nepal.

The book will have wide appeal to all readers in the East and the West who are interested in Buddhism.
