    Carolena, Megha, dance sisters and brothers:Would it be okay to perform the Heart Sutra in public?  I have done slow ATS® moves to this chant in my own studio as a meditation but am a bit hesitant to do so in public as I wish to be respectful.  Thoughts? (The version I dance with is not in English but here is the English Translation of the Heart Sutra:)  The Great Prajna Paramita Heart SutraAvalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, practising deep Prajna Paramita,clearly saw that all five skandhas are empty,transforming all suffering and distress.Shariputra, form is no other than emptiness,emptiness no other than form;form is exactly emptiness, emptiness exactly form;sensation, perception, mental reaction, consciousness are also like this.Shariputra, all things are essentially empty -not born, not destroyed; not stained, not pure; without loss, without gain.Therefore in emptiness there is no form, no sensation, perception, mental reaction, consciousness;no eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind,no colour, sound, smell, taste, touch, object of thought;no seeing and so on to no thinking;no ignorance and also no ending of ignorance,and so on to no old age and deathand also no ending of old age and death;no suffering, cause of suffering, cessation, path;no wisdom and no attainment. Since there is nothing to attain,the Bodhisattva lives by Prajna Paramita,with no hindrance in the mind; no hindrance and therefore no fear;far beyond delusive thinking right here is Nirvana.All Buddhas of past, present, and future live by Prajna Paramita,attaining Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi.Therefore know that Prajna Paramita isthe great mantra, the vivid mantra,the unsurpassed mantra, the supreme mantra,which completely removes all suffering.This is truth, not mere formality.Therefore set forth the Prajna Paramita mantra,set forth this mantra and proclaim:Gate Gate Paragate ParasamgateBodhi Svaha!
