Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
They asked Firmani, "How did you know that such and such a man was vicious? You refused to converse deeply with him while he was here, although everyone said that he was a saint."
Firmani said, "If a stranger comes to ordinary men and says, 'Light is made by weaving. I wove all the light there is and was,' what do they realize?"
They answered, "They realize that what he says is untrue."
Firmani said, "Similarly, when a vicious individual enters the company of a man of knowledge, it is not difficult to judge his condition, regardless of what people imagine or say."
