Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
Cutting off the root (of life and death) directly,
This is the mark of buddhahood;
If you go on plucking leaves (of creeds) and
Seeking branches (of abstract principles),
I can do nothing for you.
Do not seek for the truth,
Do not cut off delusions.
Trying to get rid of illusion,
And seeking to grasp reality,
This giving up and keeping
Is mere sophistry and lies.
