Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Vainly I sought the builder of my house
Through countless lives.
I could not find him....
How hard it is to tread life after life!
But now I see you, o builder!
And never again shall you build my house.
I have snapped the rafters,
Split the ridgepole
And beaten out desire.
And now my mind is free.
There are no fish in the lake.
The long-legged cranes stand in the water.
Sad is the man who in his youth
Lived loosely and squandered his fortune --
Sad is a broken bow,
And sadly is he sighing
After all that has arisen and passed away.
