Bodhisattvas’ (Compassion) Practices -19

19

Though one may be famous and revered by many people or gain wealth like that of Vaishravana, having realized that worldly fortune is without essences, to be unconceited is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation

(19)

A bodhisattva’s practice is, even if we are sweetly praised,
Bowed to with their heads by many wandering beings,
Or have obtained (riches) comparable to the fortune
   of Vaishravana (the Guardian of Wealth),
Never to be conceited, by seeing that worldly prosperity has no essence.
