I will offer help and happiness to all my mothers[1],

and secretly take upon myself

all their hurt and suffering.

 

I will learn to keep all these practices

untainted by thoughts of the eight worldly concerns[2].

May I recognize all things as like illusions,

and, without attachment, gain freedom from bondage.

―Langri Tangpa, 8 Verses on Training the Mind, v.7-8 

[1] Tibetan expression inclusive of all sentient beings.
[2] Pleasure and pain; gain and loss; fame and dishonor; praise and censure.
