No one actually knows who the specific authorship of the heart sutra belongs too. It is assumed that the sutra came from a Sarvastivada monk from the Kushan Empire. The oldest portions of the sutra are thought to come from some of the earliest wisdom scriptures of the Indian School/s that went on to become Mahayana Buddhism.
It can be argued that the heart sutra is in fact the origin of Mahayana (and thus, the finger that pushed the second great turning of the wheel of dharma)

—If You Don't Want To Be Alone
Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.
