Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
Chant by Ma Prem Geeta (Japanese) , see below.
The sutra
If at the end of our journey
There be no final resting place,
How can there be
A way to lose ourselves in?
That mischievous creature,
Having appeared in the world,
Misled, alas,
How many people!
The mind --
What shall we call it?
It is the sound of the breeze
That blows through the pines
In the Indian-ink picture.
The mind remaining
Just as it was born --
Without any prayer
It becomes the Buddha.
Tell a lie,
And you fall into hell.
Then what will happen to Buddha
Who contrived
Things that don't exist?
