Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra - the Royal song of Saraha:
I bow down to noble Manjusri
I bow down to him who has conquered the finite
As calm water lashed by wind
Turns into waves and rollers,
So the king thinks of Saraha
In many ways, although one man.
To a fool who squints
One lamp is as two,
Where seen and seer are not two, ah! The mind
Works on the thingness of them both.
Though the house-lamps have been lit,
The blind live on in the dark.
Though spontaneity is all-encompassing and close,
To the deluded it remains always far away.
Though there may be many rivers, they are one in the sea,
Though there may be many lies, one truth will conquer all.
When one sun appears, the dark,
However deep, will vanish.
