but seek only to benefit myself,
then I am deficient as to the principle of the Great Way.
If the mind is not pacified,
how much more will I not generate the Great Mind of Enlightenment?
This being so, then externally
I will not attain sympathetic resonance with the Buddhas,
and internally, I will not be able to honor my own fundamental nature.
Above, I will not be able to attain the perfect Buddha-way,
and below, I will not be able to benefit the multitude of beings.
