shorttitle DHAM1001
Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Thirty-six streams are rushing toward you!
Desire and pleasure and lust....
Play in your imagination with them
And they will sweep you away.
Powerful streams!
They flow everywhere.
Strong wine!
If you see it spring up,
Take care!
Pull it out by the roots.
Pleasures flow everywhere.
You float upon them
And are carried from life to life.
Like a hunted hare you run,
The pursuer of desire pursued,
Harried from life to life.
O seeker!
Give up desire.
Shake off your chains.
You have come out of the hollow
Into the clearing.
The clearing is empty.
Why do you rush back into the hollow?
Desire is a hollow
And people say, "Look!
He was free.
But now he gives up his freedom."
