Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Do you not see him,
The really wise man, always at ease, unmoved?
He does not get rid of illusion,
Nor does he seek for the (so-called) truth.
Ignorance is intrinsically the Buddha nature,
Our illusory unreal body is the cosmic body.
Getting rid of things and clinging to emptiness
Is an illness of the same kind;
It is just like throwing oneself into a fire
To avoid being drowned.
When asked 'What is your religion?'
I answer 'The power of the Makahannya.'
Sometimes affirming things, sometimes denying them,
It is beyond the wisdom of man.
Sometimes with common sense, sometimes against it,
Heaven cannot make head or tail of it.
