- 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.'"
