(Translated as in The Way of Tao, Vol 2 on CD-ROM)
The sutra
The skilful masters (of the Tao) in old times, with a subtle and exquisite penetration, comprehended its mysteries, which were so deep that they eluded man's knowledge. As they were thus beyond man's knowledge, I will make an effort to describe of what they appeared to be.
Cautious, like crossing a wintry stream.
Irresolute, like one fearing danger all around.
Grave, like one acting as a guest.
Self-effacing, like ice beginning to melt.
Unpretentious, like wood that has not been carved.
Vacant, like a valley.
And dull like muddy water.
