Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
To return to the root is to find the meaning, but to pursue appearances is to miss the source.
At the moment of inner enlightenment there is a going beyond appearance and emptiness.
The changes that appear to occur in the empty world we call real only because of our ignorance.
Do not search for the truth; only cease to hold opinions.
Do not remain in the dualistic state; avoid such pursuits carefully.
If there is a trace of this and that, the right and wrong, the mind essence will be lost in confusion.
Although all dualities come from the one, do not be attached even to this one.
When mind exists undisturbed in the way, nothing in the world can offend, and when a thing can no longer offend, it ceases to exist in the old way.
When no discriminating thoughts arise, the old mind ceases to exist.
