Publisher's Summary

In this Diamond Sutra, also known as the Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra, Buddha says, "This sutra should be called 'The Diamond Perfection of Wisdom sutra', because it has the capacity to cut through illusions and bring us to the shore of liberation. This is how you should receive and hold it. Why? Because that which the Buddha calls 'wisdom' is not wisdom."
The ancient sacred Buddhist text The Diamond Sutra is recited in English in a tune reminiscent of Buddhist chanting, sung by Sharon "Kumuda" Janis, author of Secrets of Spiritual Happiness and Spirituality For Dummies.
This question-and-answer format between Buddha and his disciple Subuti reveals intricate and esoteric knowledge about the nature of life, personality, charity, self-identification, and enlightenment.
