THE PRAJNA PARAMITA IS THE GREAT MAGIC SPELL, THE SPELL OF ILLUMINATION,
THE SUPREME SPELL, WHICH CAN TRULY PROTECT ONE FROM ALL SUFFERING
The above segment
of the Sutra praises the merits of Prajna. The term "spell"
suggests that the theme and the essence of this sutra transcends
concept; its power and its strength are operative in realms not
amenable to manipulation. Furthermore, its effect can manifest itself
instantaneously, transcending the worldly, attaining holiness.
