I'm not sure I'm particularly inspired by the new translation of the "Heart sūtra" by Thích Nhất Hạnh (in fact, I'm convinced that many students will think they now 'understand' emptiness, while entirely missing the well-known fact that 'realisation' is beyond mere 'understanding'), but… at least "the reasons for a new translation" are worth a read, and the new translation is worth questioning and enquiring into (or "not-knowing"):
