Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Hakuju served as a distinguished lecturer at the Tendai-sect college. As he was lecturing with his customary zeal on the Chinese classics one hot summer's afternoon, he noticed that a few of the students were dozing off. He stopped his lecturing in midsentence and said, "It is a hot afternoon, isn't it? Can't blame you for going to sleep. Mind if I join you?"
With this, Hakuju shut his textbook, and leaning well back in his chair, fell asleep.
The class was dumbfounded, and those who had been dozing were awakened by his snores. All sat up in their seats and waited for the master to awaken.
