synopsis
Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
A monk was reciting the Diamond sutra: "... If one sees that forms are not forms, he then sees Buddha."
The master was passing by and heard it. He then said to the monk "You recite wrongly. It goes like this: 'If one sees that forms are forms, he then sees Buddha.'"
The monk exclaimed, "What you have said is just the opposite to the words of the sutra!"
The master then replied, "How can a blind man read the sutra?"
