Abstract

The Diamond Sūtra, full name is Vajracchedika Prajnap aramita in Sanskrit. Vajracchedika means “the diamond that cuts through afflictions, ignorance, delusion, or illusion.” In China, people generally call it The Diamond Sūtra. It contains the discourses of the Buddha to a senior monk, Subhuti. The Diamond Sūtra is written in Sanskrit originally. It is recorded that there are six Chinese versions of The Diamond Sūtra, and Kumarajiva’s version is the most popular one.
