What friend is there who does as much? What else is there which is as meritorious?

If even those who do good deeds as repayment For past favours are worthy of some praise, What need is there to mention the bodhisattvas, Whose perfect actions are carried out unbidden? There are those who offer meals occasionally, and to just a few; Their gifts, which are no more than food, are made in just a moment, And with disrespect, to bring nourishment for merely half a day— And yet such people are honoured by the world as virtuous.

Yet how does this compare to those who give Over many ages and to the whole infinity of beings, Constantly offering them the fulfilment of their every wish: The unsurpassable happiness born of blissful buddhahood?

By contrast, to look upon them well, Will yield benefits in still greater measure. I bow down before all those in whom This most precious, sacred mind is born! I take refuge in those great sources of joy Who bring bliss even to those who harm them.

Translated by Adam Pearcey, All other virtues are like the plantain tree: They bear their fruit, and then they are no more. Yet constantly the marvellous tree of bodhicitta Yields fruit and, undiminished, grows forevermore.

Just like a great inferno at the ends of time, It annihilates terrible misdeeds in but an instant. Thus its benefits are vast beyond all measuring, As the wise Lord Maitreya explained to Sudhana. Just as one understands the difference Between wishing to go and setting out upon a journey, The wise should understand these two, Recognizing their difference and their order. From the moment we genuinely take up This irreversible attitude— The mind that aspires to liberate entirely The infinite realms of beings, From then on, even while asleep, Or during moments of inattention, A plentiful, unceasing force of merit Will arise, equal to the vastness of the sky.

Do even our fathers or our mothers Have such beneficence as this? Do the gods or the great sages?

If these beings have never before Held this aspiration for their own sake— Not even in their dreams—how could They have made this wish for others? A thought such as this—wanting for others What they do not wish for even for themselves— Is an extraordinary and precious state of mind, And its occurrence a marvel unlike any other!

Although seeking to avoid pain, They run headlong into suffering. They long for happiness, but foolishly Destroy it, as if it were their enemy.
