Here is the text of the e-mail Ryan wrote accompanying the audio file he sent me:
As I make my way through The Diamond Sutra I feel a new tranquil balance. It seems as though it is explaining and urging me to grasp a seeming paradox.
Having set out to memorize the text I decided I needed a pneumonic device. With that in mind I decided to record it so that I might listen to it and form a stronger impression on which to build.
While my voice is not the most beautiful nor my annunciation always perfect I feel that it is good enough for my purposes, and may even be for others.
That said, I would like to offer you the recording as thanks and in the hopes that you might find some practical use for it.
As far as I am concerned it is your do so with as you please provided you see any merit in it.
Thank you again for the clear interpretation. If it is possible I request that you interpret more Sutras. Clearly this would benefit everyone.
