Mountain Sutra

To smite is to kill someone most probably with a cudgel. To be smitten
means either to be killed or in love. Love and death meet in the word.

"The world has no part in the experience. It permits itself to be exper- 
ienced, but has no concern in the matter. For it does nothing to the 
experience, and the experience does nothing to it." (Martin Buber)
