- Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
- The sutra
- On the wise ones of old:
- The wise ones of old had subtle wisdom
- And depth of understanding,
- So profound that they could not be understood
- And because they could not be understood,
- Perforce must they be so described:
- Cautious, like crossing a wintry stream,
- Irresolute, like one fearing danger all around,
- Grave, like one acting as guest,
- Self-effacing, like ice beginning to melt,
- Genuine, like a piece of undressed wood,
- Open-minded, like a valley,
- And mixing freely, like murky water.
- Who can find repose in a muddy world?
- By lying still, it becomes clear.
- Who can maintain his calm for long?
- By activity, it comes back to life.
- He who embraces this Tao
- Guards against being overfull.
- Because he guards against being overfull
- He is beyond wearing out and renewal.
