notes
synopsis
Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
When an archer is shooting for fun
He has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle
He is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold
He goes blind
Or sees two targets --
He is out of his mind.
His skill has not changed,
But the prize divides him.
He cares.
He thinks more of winning
Than of shooting --
And the need to win
Drains him of power.
