Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
Chant by Sw Prem Prabuddha , see below.
The sutra
A rest on the way back
From the leaky road
To the never-leaking road;
If it rains, let it rain;
If it blows, let it blow.
My self of long ago,
In nature non-existent;
Nowhere to go when dead,
Nothing at all.
When asked, he answered;
No question, no answer;
Then master Daruma
Must have had
Nothing in his mind.
Our mind --
Without end,
Without beginning,
Though it is born, though it dies --
The essence of emptiness!
All the sins committed
In the three worlds
Will fade and disappear
Together with myself.

The chant before some of the discourses of this series is special: they were sung in Japanese, which never happened with other discourses.
