VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users' privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: The Sound Incomparable


To me came the Sound incomparable, which comes
Neither from within, nor from without.
Neither does it come from the left, nor from the right.
Nor from the back, nor from the front.
You will ask then, whence does it come?
It comes from the direction you are seeking to go.
You will ask then, which way shall I face? --
The side from which the bride-groom cometh.
That direction whence ripeness comes to fruit;
That direction from which stones become diamonds.
Be silent and listen to the five sounds from Heaven,
The Heaven which is beyond all senses and directions.
Every moment of life this wondrous Sound
Reaches down from the courts of Heaven
Fortunate above all the children of humanity
Who hears its enchanting melodies.
