Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha. Chant by Ma Prem Geeta (Japanese).
The sutra
If it rain, let it rain;
If it rain not, let it not rain;
But even should it not rain,
You must travel
With wet sleeves.
Look at the cherry blossoms!
Their colour and scent fall with them,
Are gone for ever,
Yet mindless
The spring comes again.
Is the shaved part of the saucepan,
The whiskers of the pebble,
The sound that accompanies
The bamboos in the picture.
The puppet-player hangs them
Round his neck, not his heart;
He can take out a devil,
He can take out a buddha.
If he says,
"There is nothing special about it,"
Already he has transgressed,
And can say nothing else,
This Daruma Ikkyu.
