Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
If you know your own worth,
What need you care about
The acceptance or rejection of others?
Worship him as if you could see
Him with your physical eyes;
Though you don't see him,
He sees you.
Whilst in this land
Of fruitless pursuits,
You are always unbalanced, always
Either all back or all front;
But once the seeking soul has progressed
Just a few paces beyond this state,
Love seizes the reins.
While this world remains,
That one cannot be;
Whilst you exist,
God cannot be yours.
The coming of death
Is the key which unlocks
The unknown domain;
But for death, the door of true faith
Would remain unopened.
If you yourself
Are upside down in reality,
Then your wisdom and faith
Are bound to be topsy-turvy.
Stop weaving a net about yourself:
Burst like a lion from the cage.
Melt yourself down in this search:
Venture your life and your soul
In the path of sincerity;
Strive to pass from nothingness to being,
And make yourself drunk with the wine of God.
