Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
When yang Chu was passing through Sung he spent the night at an inn.
The innkeeper had two concubines -- one beautiful, and the other ugly.
The ugly one he valued, and the beautiful one he neglected. When Yang Chu asked the reason, the fellow answered: The beautiful one thinks herself beautiful, and I do not notice her beauty; the ugly one thinks herself ugly, and I do not notice her ugliness.
Yang Chu said to his disciples: Remember this -- if you act nobly and banish from your mind the thought that you are noble, where can you go and not be loved?
