- Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
- The sutra
- A powerful king, ruler of many domains, was in a position of such magnificence that wise men were his mere employees. And yet one day he felt himself confused and called his sages to him.
- He said:
- 'I do not know the cause, but something impels me to seek a certain ring, one that will enable me to stabilize my state. I must have such a ring, and this ring must be one which, when I am unhappy it will make me joyful, and at the same time, if I am happy and look upon it I must be made sad.'
- The wise men consulted one another, and threw themselves into deep contemplation. Finally they came to a decision as to the character of this ring which would suit their king.
- The ring which they devised was one upon which was inscribed the legend:
- 'This, too, will pass.'
