After reading your article on the Heart Sutra, I noticed one factual error. In the article, it states, “…AvalokiteÅ›vara, who represents the faculty of prajña (wisdom)” From a Buddhist perspective, this is incorrect. The bodhisattva that represents wisdom is actually Manjushri. However, since emptiness (the topic of the Heart Sutra) and compassion are inextricably linked this may be why AvalokiteÅ›vara presents this sutra to Sariputra.
