Xuan Zang, an ambitious learned Buddhist priest, ventured on a long difficult journey across the deserts to India in the year 629, and after working hard in the birthplace of Buddhism, came back to Xi'an in 645 taking more than 600 Buddhist scriptures and materials with him. Living a life of religious devotion, he left behind great works of scripture translations and travel records for future generations.
The Heart Sutra is one of his painstaking translations introduced to Japan, and up until today it has been earning the great respect among Japanese Buddhists as one of the most authoritative texts teaching the truth of our mental and material world.
