Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Bahauddin El-shah was sitting with a number of disciples when a number of followers came into the meeting hall. El-shah asked each of them, one by one, to say why he was there.
The first said: You are the greatest man on earth.
I gave him a potion when he was ill, so he thinks I am the greatest man on earth, said El-shah.
The second said: My spiritual life has opened up since I have been allowed to visit you.
He was uncertain and ill at ease and none would listen to him. I sat with him, and the resultant serenity is called by him his spiritual life, said El-shah.
The third said: You understand me, and all I ask is that you allow me to hear your discourses for the good of my soul.
He needs attention and wished to have notice paid to him even if it is criticism, said El-shah. This he calls the good of his soul.
The fourth said: I went from one to another practicing what they taught. It was not until you gave me a wazifa exercise that I truly felt the illumination of contact with you.
The exercise I gave this man was a concocted one not related to his spiritual life at all, said El-shah. I had to demonstrate his illusion of spirituality before I could arrive at the part of this man which is really spiritual, not sentimental.
