Album Notes
About Repentance Verses

“All the wrong doings I’ve done in the past are caused by greed, rage and lack of wisdom. For all the consequences due to my actions, words and thoughts, I repent fully today.”

Repentance originates from Ksama in Sanskrit, and the Repentance Verses are chants used to confess one’s errors and ask for tolerance and forgiveness. All the wrong-doings are the results of the greedy heart, the anguish heart, and the foolish and unreasonable heart, and they are caused by the actions of the body, the spoken words and the mind. If one could realize the origin of their sins and genuinely reflect within the self, through repentance, the sins could be purified. When Buddhist practitioners are engaged in introspection or when monks have broken the monastic codes, they would make public vows in front of the Buddha, the Goddess of Mercy – Guanyin, the elders or the general public, and promise that they would never make the same mistakes again; in order to clear their sins, the would sing the Repentance Verses.

The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra

In many of the Buddhist sutras, the 260-word heart Sutra – Prajna Paramita Suta, is the most concise yet insightful sutra. The Heart Sutra may be brief, but it is the quintessence of the 600-chapter Great Wisdom Sutra – Mahaprajna Paramita Sutra. The Heart Sutra embodies the essence of the philosophies of Mahayana Buddhism and Theravada Buddhism; therefore, reading The Heart Sutra is considered a good approach to understanding the 600-chapter Great Wisdom Sutra.
