Lin, Pei‐Yin (2011) Precepts and lineage in Chan tradition: cross‐cultural perspectives in ninth century East Asia. PhD Thesis. SOAS, University of London:

ཨོཾ་མ་ཧཱ་ཤུནྱ་ཏཱ་ཛྙཱ་ན་བཛྲ་སྭཱ་བྷཱ་བ་ཨཱཏྨ་ཀོ་྅ཧཾ༔

The thousands of lines of the Prajnaparamita can be summed up in the following two sentences:
1) One should become a Bodhisattva (or, Buddha-to-be), i.e. one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all beings.
2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a ‘being’, or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment.
To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect.

Just to note, her name is: Lin Pei-Ying.

She is a Visiting Scholar at Dharma Drum Buddhist College and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of Oxford (though her post-doc should be about finished by now).
