notes
synopsis
Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
The purpose of a fish trap
Is to catch fish,
And when the fish are caught
The trap is forgotten.
The purpose of words
Is to convey ideas.
When the ideas are grasped
The words are forgotten.
Where can I find a man
Who has forgotten words?
He is the one
I would like to talk to.
