- Reader of the sutras: Sw Anand Vimal.
- The sutra
- If any of you would bring to judgment the unfaithful wife,
- Let him also weigh the heart of her husband in scales, and measure his soul with measurements.
- And let him who would lash the offender look unto the spirit of the offended.
- And if any of you would punish in the name of righteousness and lay the axe unto the evil tree, let him see to its roots;
- And verily he will find the roots of the good and the bad, the fruitful and the fruitless, all entwined together in the silent heart of the earth.
- And you judges who would be just.
- What judgment pronounce you upon him who though honest in the flesh is yet a thief in spirit?
- What penalty lay you upon him who slays in the flesh yet is himself slain in the spirit?
- And how prosecute you him who in action is a deceiver and an oppressor,
- Yet who also is aggrieved and outraged?
- And how shall you punish those whose remorse is already greater than their misdeeds?
- Is not remorse the justice which is administered by the very law which you would fain serve?
- Yet you cannot lay the remorse upon the innocent nor lift it from the heart of the guilty.
- Unbidden shall it call in the night, that men may wake and gaze upon themselves.
- And you who would understand justice, how shall you unless you look upon all deeds in the fullness of light?
- Only then shall you know that the erect and the fallen are but one man standing in twilight between the night of his pygmy-self and the day of his god-self.
- And that the corner stone of the temple is not higher than the lowest stone in its foundation.
