- 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.
