- Reader of the sutras: Sw Anand Vimal.
- The sutra
- Then one of the judges of the city stood forth and said, speak to us of crime and punishment.
- And he answered, saying:
- It is when your spirit goes wandering upon the wind,
- That you, alone and unguarded, commit a wrong unto others and therefore unto yourself.
- And for that wrong committed must you knock and wait a while unheeded at the gate of the blessed.
- Like the ocean is your god-self;
- It remains for ever undefiled.
- And like the ether it lifts but the winged.
- Even like the sun is your god-self;
- It knows not the ways of the mole nor seeks it the holes of the serpent.
- But your god-self dwells not alone in your being.
- Much in you is still man, and much in you is not yet man,
- But a shapeless pygmy that walks asleep in the mist searching for its own awakening.
- And of the man in you would I now speak.
- For it is he and not your god-self nor the pygmy in the mist that knows crime and the punishment of crime.
