Re: Has the Heart Sutra Been Finally Proven as Chinese Apocrypha?

Here's a small nugget I was able to find while thinking about this intriguing sentence Jayarava wrote: http://jayarava.blogspot.com/2017/11/japanese-reception-of-chinese-origins.html There is no doubt in my mind, despite some minor slips on Nattier's part, that the thesis is accurate. I think I have...

Re: 般若佛姆心咒

Does anyone have any information about this text 般若佛姆心咒 which is found tacked onto the end of Xuanzang's translation of Prajñāpāramitā texts T220? It has the Heart Sutra dhāraṇī presented as a mantra (beginning with oṃ ). It strikes me as anachronistic, if only because it includes oṃ , a feature of...

Re: 般若佛姆心咒

Or is there evidence of oṃ in use before the 8th Century? Can anyone point to any articles or books that discuss this text? Thanks There are quite a couple of tantric texts in the Chinese canon that features Om and are dated well earlier than 700 A.D. For example, the earliest dated text (c.563 or ...

Re: Has the Heart Sutra Been Finally Proven as Chinese Apocrypha?

In any case, Jayarava attempts to "seal the deal" by posting a "best of" compilation of his case against the Heart Sutra yesterday: http://jayarava.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-chinese-origins-of-heart-sutra.html Wonder if anyone with serious Sanskrit chops and comment on his piece. This part is especia...

Re: Has the Heart Sutra Been Finally Proven as Chinese Apocrypha?

The rest of it is not really going into. The guy's admittedly only had a few hours of formal Sanskrit training and is mostly self-taught. His understanding of Nagarjuna and the rest of the canon is pretty laughable. If this article is supposed to be proof of his chops as an academic, it falls far s...

Re: Has the Heart Sutra Been Finally Proven as Chinese Apocrypha?

Jayarava is the very same person that has suggested that the Buddha himself never even existed. Why would anybody take people like this seriously? These kind of people aren't followers of the Buddha. The only thing they are trying to do is deconstruct and destroy. Nothing other than that. Well, thi...

Has the Heart Sutra Been Finally Proven as Chinese Apocrypha?

Recently Jayarava Atwood, which I'm sure many here on this forum are familiar with, has been a blistery pace in analyzing and deconstructing the famous Heart Sutra in East Asian Buddhism. His posts are many in the past 2 years, but here are the most prominent ones: http://jayarava.blogspot.com/2017/...

Re: What Did the Japanese Preserved that the Chinese Lost?

Indrajala, Thank you for that informative breakdown! In terms of the textual canon, do you know of any resources or articles out there that has a comprehensive summary/rundown on each of the Chinese texts that were lost in China proper but later recovered from Japan? Also, off the top of your head, ...

Arya-Manjusthrimulakalpa: Chinese Translation Available?

Hi all, Recent came across this early medieval text that was often referred to by scholars of Indian Buddhist history: http://www.dsbcproject.org/node/8234 That contains some interesting historical traditions regarding the Guptan emperors. From what I read, apparently there was also a Chinese transl...

What Did the Japanese Preserved that the Chinese Lost?

In homage to the other thread on the reception of Japanese Buddhism in the Sinosphere, Indrajala asserted that the Japanese Buddhist traditions actually preserved many texts, rituals, art, lineages, etc. that have been lost in China proper since the last millenia (I take it?). As someone who has hea...
