Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Tokusan was studying Zen under Ryutan. One night Tokusan came to Ryutan and asked many questions.
The teacher said, "The night is getting old -- why don't you retire?"
So Tokusan bowed, and as he opened the screen to go out he observed, "It is very dark outside."
Ryutan offered Tokusan a lighted candle to find his way, but just as Tokusan received it, Ryutan blew it out.
At that moment the mind of Tokusan was opened.
