This piece is inspired by the Heart Sutra, an ancient text from the oral teachings of Buddha about the state of going beyond. Beyond everything. Beyond all thought, all form, all suffering, all impermanence.

Beyond to the truth of who we are. The sutra concludes with the mantra “gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā,” meaning, “gone, gone, everyone gone to the other shore, awakened to the truth of who we are.”
