Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Bahaudin Shah once gave an address on the principles and practices of the Sufis. A certain man who thought that he was clever and could benefit from criticizing him, said, "If only this man would say something new! That is my only criticism."
Bahaudin heard of this, and invited the critic to dinner. "I hope that you will approve of my lamb stew," he said. When he had taken the first mouthful, the guest jumped up, shouting, "You are trying to poison me -- this isn't lamb stew!"
"But it is," said Bahaudin, "though since you don't like old recipes, I have tried something new. This contains lamb all right, but there is a good dash of mustard, honey and emetic in it as well."
