shorttitle WAY206
(Translated as in The Way of Tao, Vol 2 on CD-ROM)
The sutra
Colour's five hues, from the eyes their sight will take
Music's five notes, the ears as deaf can make.
The five flavours deprive the mouth of taste.
The chariot course, and the wild hunting waste
Make mad the mind; and objects rare and strange.
That are sought for, make men's conduct to evil change.
Therefore, the sage seeks to satisfy (the craving of) the navel,
And not the (insatiable longing of the) eyes.
He puts from him the latter, and prefers to seek the former.
