Buddha's First Sutra

 Pseudo Dionysius Mystical Theology - from Pseudo Dionysius: The Complete Works (Classics of Western Spirituality). This is the 1988 translation which I prefer over the one found on the Internet though I have no criticism of, nor am qualified to criticize, the latter which I have posted a link to a few times over the years. Jim Wilson of Many Rivers Books and Tea in Sebastopol CA turned me on to Pseudo Dionysius, calling his Mystical Theology the Heart Sutra of Christianity. The pseudo in his name means that the Dionysius was a pseudonym, a common practice for monks. - DC
