Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
To a fly that likes the smell of putrid
Meat, the fragrance of sandalwood is foul.
Beings who discard nirvana
Covet coarse samsara's realm.
An ox's footprints filled with water
Will soon dry up; so with a mind that's firm
But full of qualities that are not perfect,
These imperfections will in time dry up.
Like salt sea water that turns
Sweet when drunk up by the clouds,
So a firm mind that works for others turns
The poison of sense-objects into nectar.
If ineffable, never is one unsatisfied,
If unimaginable, it must be bliss itself.
Though from a cloud one fears the thunderclap,
The crops ripen when from it pours the rain.
