The Diamond Sutra at CBETA (Yi Jing, Dharmagupta, Paramartha, Kumarajiva)

Yi Jing:




The teaching given by Shakyamuni Buddha in the Diamond Sutra comes in response to a question from Subhuti: how should Bodhisattvas tame their minds?

But what is the actual wording in the original Chinese for this phrase “tame the mind”?

Yi Jing has 攝伏其心.

Both Kumarajiva and Dharmagupta have 心降伏.

In all three versions, the Buddha reflects the question back using the same phrasing as Subhuti.
