- Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
- The sutra
- A monk asked the Buddha: what is most powerful and what is most illuminating?
- The buddha said:
- Meekness is most powerful for it harbours no evil thoughts, and moreover it is restful and full of strength. As it is free from evils it is sure to be honoured by all.
- The most illuminating is a mind which is thoroughly cleansed of dirt, and which, remaining pure, retains no blemishes. From the time when there was yet no heaven and earth till the present day there is nothing in the ten quarters which is not seen or heard by such a mind. For it has gained all knowledge and for that reason it is called illuminating.
