The Wisdom Path Situated on the south east of Ngong Ping is a monument to the people of Hong Kong. It is given to them by professor Jan Tsung-i. With the words of the Heart Sutra, the monument consists of 38 timber inscribed columns. These timber columns are set out in a figure of eight and between 8 and 10 meters high. The Buddhist stone carving on mount Taisham in Shandong was discovered by Professor Jan Tsung-i while on his trip to china. You can visit this during your Lantau Tours in Hong Kong. As this sutra is by Buddhists, Taoist and Confucians considered a treasure, he set about to create a calligraphic work of the Heart Sutra Inspired by the carvings.

Used by Buddhists, the Heart Sutra is a pray, it is believed to be the main one although it is one of many. Prajna-Paramita heart sutra is the full title of the sutra, which is a Sanskrit term. The word Paramita describes perfection and the word Prajna describes wisdom. We have the perfection and wisdom and heart (Buddha). "The Perfection of Wisdom of the Buddha" is what the title reads. Each column has a selection of that prayer and this is the prayer of the Sutra. Heart Sutra is the shortest at only 260 words and is the best written Mahayana Sutra. Du to the profound doctrine as its readings are in very difficult one will find it very difficult to understand the Heart Sutra. You will be able to find the Secret of the Universe by persistent meditation and reading. You just have to find it to truly understand.

The figure of eight on its side adheres to the landscape they are set out as well in such a way. There is no inscription in the single column at the top. This is because the word Sunyatta written in the Sutra, which means emptiness. So the column means emptiness.
