I may know as many sutras as an elephant can carry on his back,
but if I do not abandon self-grasping and self-cherishing,
my mind is still far from the Dharma.
Bless me to realize the wisdom of equality!
On the peak of pride and fame, water does not remain.
If others deem me gifted or superior,
when I have not subdued the poisons,
my actions are still far from the Dharma.
Bless me to manifest all-accomplishing wisdom!
What color is the flower that blooms where no one sees it?
Dreams, fixation, and different experience;
—the grasper and the grasped share the same nature.
Bless me to maintain a joyful mind!
Informed by wisdom and impelled by compassion,
may I ever heal the sick, nurture the young,
protect the weak, love the beautiful,
serve the good, honor the wise, and align with the highest.
Bless me to benefit all beings, spontaneously and constantly!
