Prajnaparamita Bodhisattva

The word Prajñāpāramitā combines the Sanskrit words prajñā (wisdom) with pāramitā (perfection)

                                 Prajnaparamita Bodhisattva

All I do is refrain from grasping after what is not real.
The Buddha, Prajnaparamita
The mind does not reside in the mind — its nature is pure light.
Perfect Wisdom, Prajnaparamita
I see in such a way that I see no ordinary people, no learners, and no adepts.
Manjushri, Prajnaparamita 700 lines

The Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) texts, are said to be closest Buddhists got to putting truth (impossible task) into words.
