Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
As higher awareness, they teach what they experience within.
What fetters them they will call liberation.
A glass trinket coloured green, to them is a (priceless) emerald,
Deluded, they know not a gem from what they think it should be.
They take copper to be gold. Bound by discursive thought
They think these thoughts to he ultimate reality.
They long for the pleasures experienced in dreams.
They call the perishable body-mind eternal bliss supreme.
By the symbol evam (they think) self-clearness is achieved,
By the different situations that demand four seals
They call what they have fancied spontaneity,
But this is looking at reflections in a mirror.
As under delusion's power a herd of deer will rush
For the water in a mirage which is not recognised,
So also the deluded quench not their thirst, are bound by chains
And find pleasure in them, saying that all is ultimately real.
