Unpolluted

pinklotusThough they are beyond all worldly matters,

these Bodhisattvas do not leave the world.

They act for the sake of all beings,

unblemished by its defects.

As a lotus will grow in the midst of muddy water,

not being polluted by the water’s blemishes,

these Noble Ones are born in the world

unpolluted by any worldly phenomena.

―Maitreya, Uttaratantra Shastra
