shorttitle DHAM0707
Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Silence cannot make a master out of a fool.
But he who weighs only purity in his scales,
Who seeks the nature of the two worlds,
He is a master.
He harms no living thing.
And yet it is not good conduct
That helps you upon the way,
Nor ritual, nor book learning,
Nor withdrawal into the self,
Nor deep meditation.
None of these confers mastery or joy.
O seeker!
Rely on nothing
Until you want nothing.
