- Reader of the sutras: Sw Anand Vimal.
- The sutra
- Oftentimes have I heard you speak of one who commits a wrong as though he were not one of you but a stranger unto you and an intruder upon your world.
- But I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you,
- So the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.
- And as a single leaf turns not yellow but with the silent knowledge of the whole tree,
- So the wrongdoer cannot do wrong without the hidden will of you all.
- Like a procession you walk together towards your god-self.
- You are the way and the wayfarers.
- And when one of you falls down he falls for those behind him, a caution against the stumbling stone.
- Ay, and he falls for those ahead of him who, though faster and surer of foot, yet removed not the stumbling stone.
- And this also, though the word lie heavy upon your hearts:
- The murdered is not unaccountable for his own murder,
- And the robbed is not blameless in being robbed.
- The righteous is not innocent of the deeds of the wicked,
- And the white-handed is not clean in the doings of the felon.
- Yea, the guilty is oftentimes the victim of the injured.
- And still more often the condemned is the burden bearer for the guiltless and unblamed.
- You cannot separate the just from the unjust and the good from the wicked;
- For they stand together before the face of the sun even as the black thread and the white are woven together.
- And when the black thread breaks, the weaver shall look into the whole cloth, and he shall examine the loom, also.
