Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
A scholar said to a Sufi, "You Sufis often say that our logical questions are incomprehensible to you. Can you give me an example of what they seem like to you?"
The Sufi said, "Here is such an example. I was once travelling by train and we went through seven tunnels. Opposite me was sitting a peasant who obviously had never been in a train before.
After the seventh tunnel, the peasant tapped me on the knee and said, 'This train is too complicated. On my donkey I can get to my village in only one day. But by train, which seems to be travelling faster than a donkey, we have not yet arrived at my home, though the sun has risen and set seven whole times.'"
