This is a exceptional book. Visually beautiful and clearly a documentation of the Heart Sutra. This is a lovely book.
Velan
The book was a gift and came in excellent condition. The receiver was truly impressed with the book.
Mash
I enjoyed it.
Thozius
My husband loves it and it came in good condition. He was very impressed with the style and quality of the writing.
Gaua
The book was somewhat different to the description of it on the web-site on which I first learned of it.
I had expected more information about the Sino-Japanese characters in which the text is usually written. I had not realised that it was simply a visual treatment of the 'seal script' and gave me little information about the way in which the Sutra was originally translated into Chinese/Japanese.
It's my fault. I should have researched more carefully what I was ordering.
But it is a beautiful paperback book and arrived in pristine condition.
Thomeena
It’s a very small representation of the sutra and not what I expected
inetserfer
This is an insubstantial book on the Heart Sutra. Definitely not for readers who want a deeper knowledge of the Heart Sutra nor the various calligraphic scripts by numerous master calligraphers over centuries in China and Japan. Disapppointingly, only one version of Seal Script was shown.
