LETTER FROM SADO
It is impossible to fathom one's karma. Iron, when heated in flames and
pounded, becomes a fine sword. Wise men and saints are tested by abuse. My
present exile is not because of any crime. It is solely so that I may expiate in
this lifetime my past heavy slanders, and be free from the three evil paths in the
next.
