Reader of the sutra: Ma Yoga Taru, also chanting.
The sutra
Now follow the traits of seekers of the second stage, called the stage of thought.
He lives in the care of learned men who explain best what
Listening, remembering, right conduct, contemplation -- dharana -- and meditation are.
Having acquired knowledge of such scriptures as are worth listening to,
He efficiently discriminates between what is duty and what is not,
And he knows well the division between a word and the thing it symbolizes.
His mind does not suffer from an excess of conceit, pride, greed and attachment,
Although externally they are apparent to some extent.
He gives up his external impurities as a snake casts off its slough.
Such a seeker acquires the actual knowledge of all these things
With the grace of the scriptures, the guru, and the sages.
