Abstract:This copy was published in 1891 (Meiji 24) by Yano Heibei 矢野平兵衞. It reproduces the book published in 1753 with an afterword by Tōrei. As in other works by Hakuin, it has Kitō henshū 饑凍編集 Kanga kōsei 寒餓校正, meaning literally "edited by the starving and freezing [one], proof-read by the cold and starving [one]," a pseudonym for Tōrei and Hakuin, or both. This works is a commentary of the Mahā-prajñā-pāramitā-hṛdaya-sūtra (The Sūtra of the Heart of the Great Perfection of Insight), using the Chinese version attributed to Xuánzàng 玄奘 (602–664) and its common rendition in the Japanese Taishō Tripitaka edition 般若波羅蜜多心經 (T. 8 No. 251).
