Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha. Chant by Ma Prem Geeta (Japanese).
The sutra
My abiding place
Has no pillars;
It is roofless --
Yet the rain does not wet it,
Nor the wind strike it.
When it blows,
The mountain wind is boisterous,
But when it blows not,
It simply blows not.
Though it has no bridge,
The cloud climbs up to heaven;
It does not ask aid
Of Gautama's sutras.
Ripples appear
On the unaccumulated water
Of the undug well,
As the formless, bodiless man
Draws water from it.
The mind:
Since there is really
No such thing as mind,
With what enlightenment
Shall it be enlightened?
