Smaller Wisdom Sutra ［小品般若経］ ( Ashtasāhasrikā-prajnāpāramitā; Chin Hsiao-p’in-pan-jo-ching; Shōbon-hannya-kyō): Another name for the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, translated into Chinese by Kumārajīva in the early fifth century. It is called the Smaller Wisdom Sutra in contrast with the Larger Wisdom Sutra, a longer text that Kumārajīva also translated under the same title, the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra. The setting of the Smaller Wisdom Sutra is Eagle Peak. In the first section, Subhūti preaches on behalf of Shakyamuni Buddha the teaching of the perfection of wisdom ( prajnā-pāramitā) and describes how Shakyamuni’s practice of this teaching in past existences enabled him to attain Buddhahood. He asserts the superiority of the prajnā-pāramitā, (the pāramitā, or perfection, of prajnā, or wisdom) over the other five of the six pāramitās. Shakyamuni then says that the prajnā-pāramitā is equal to the supreme wisdom and is the mother of all bodhisattvas; if a bodhisattva takes faith in the teaching of the perfection of wisdom, he will never fail to attain Buddhahood. After emphasizing the supremacy of prajnā-pāramitā, the sutra ends with the story of Bodhisattva Ever Wailing, who travels about seeking this teaching.
