Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
A young man came to Dhun-nun and said that the Sufis were wrong, and many another thing besides.
The Egyptian removed a ring from his finger and handed it to him. 'Take this to the market stallholders over there and see whether you can get a gold piece for it,' he said.
Nobody among the market people offered more than a single silver piece for the ring.
The young man brought the ring back.
'Now,' said Dhun-nun, 'take the ring to the real jeweller and see what he will pay.'
The jeweller offered a thousand gold pieces for the gem.
The youth was amazed.
'Now,' said Dhun-nun, 'your knowledge of the Sufis is as great as the knowledge of the stallholders is of jewellery. If you wish to value gems, become a jeweller.'
